    Die Suche der Sherpas DVD

    Die Suche der Sherpas

    Heinz Leger (2012)

    Sherpas are the real heroes of high altitude mountaineering. To the early explorers of the Himalayan region they were immeasurably valuable. Without their skills as guides, their hardiness and endurance as porters even the most modern mountain expeditions would not have been possible. But to this day the achievements of the Sherpas have not found their way into the alpine history books. The blue-chip documentary 'The Sherpas' Quest' shows where these people come from and reveals the real importance of the Sherpas for the international climbing and mountaineering community.

    Der Ortler

    Der Ortler

    Jochen Hemmleb (2016)

    The documentary accompanies top alpinists in three extreme sports, on three walls and all in one day. The South Tyrolean mountain guide and professional mountaineer Christoph Hainz, the Kitzbühel extreme skier Axel Naglich as well as the Grödner speedriding pilots Armin and Guido Senoner climb through blue shimmering ice walls, fly with paragliders through the funnel down the wall for the first time and it goes with skis through the dizzying Minnigerode channel - a 50 degree steep descent with almost 1,400 meters difference in altitude.

    Peter Ressmann - Eine Widmung

    Peter Ressmann - Eine Widmung

    Gerald Salmina (2013)

    Peter Ressmann was an experienced alpinist - during a routine exercise in 2010 he died in an accident. The portrait shows how Ressmann developed from a Kitzbühel boy to a mountaineer on the one hand, but above all to a straightforward and grounded person on the other. Mountain partners like Axel Naglich remember this unique mountaineer, who was not only known and appreciated for the longest ski run from Mount St. Elias.

    Climbing Everest with a mountain on my back - The sherpa's story

    Climbing Everest with a mountain on my back - The sherpa's story

    Heinz Leger (2012)

    Every year, over a thousand climbers try to reach the summit of Mount Everest, with the annual record for successful attempts currently standing at 633. But of that number, nearly half were Sherpas - the mountain's unsung heroes. Yet the Sherpa community has remained secretive about their nation, culture and experiences living in the shadow of the world's highest mountain. Now, for the first time, they open the door into their world. Adapted version for the BBC of the original Austrian documentary 'Die Suche der Sherpas'.
