    Unter Blinden

    Eva Spreitzhofer (2015)

    Andy Holzer is an extreme mountaineer and he has already climbed six of the 'Seven Summits'. What makes the difference between him and other professional alpinists? He is blind. Nevertheless, one can meet him in places where one would not expect blind persons, that is: in steep faces, where he is climbing, skiing and mountain biking. In his speeches for managers, he explains the world to the seeing people. This film shows in a thrilling but also funny way, how liberating it can be to adhere to weaknesses, and to concentrate on potencies.

    Der leise und der laute Weg - Schiestl - Bubendorfer

    Manfred Gabrielli (1995)

    This documentary takes us back to the youth of two exceptional Austrian alpinists. Both accomplished great achievements, but personally they were very opposite characters: the noisy path of Thomas Bubendorfer from Salzburg, born in 1962, led not only to the mountain, but above all to the columns of society in the media; the quiet path of the Tyrolean elementary school teacher Reinhard Schiestl from Huben in the Ötztal, born in 1957, however, through crevasses in the glaciers.

    Luis Trenker - Pionier und Egomane

    Karin Duregger (2016)

    Even more than 25 years after his death, Luis Trenker is still an icon of the mountains: no one else has ensured such a lasting popularisation of the living environment in the (South) Tyrolean Alps. Whether as a film pioneer or as a TV presenter, he captivated an audience of millions. A gnarly nature boy in a felt hat and a mountaineer's shirt: Luis Trenker, who died in 1990, is still remembered today. In the 1920s and 1930s, the actor, screenwriter and director shaped the young genre of 'mountain film'. His films attracted the masses to the cinema - and at the same time fascinated the dictators of the time, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

    Hitlers Gipfelstürmer

    Hitlers Gipfelstürmer

    Tom Matzek (2009)

    Mountain climbers, jungle explorers and desert foxes - many of them ended up in the claws of the Nazi Party, the SS or the Wehrmacht because of their careers, scientific curiosity or their love of travel. Were these adventurers aware of the consequences of this association or were they simply interested in pursuing their own interests regardless of the price? That's the question that this documentary seeks to answer for the search for pre-historic sites in the Sahara led to the development of maps for the Wehrmacht, while an airborne expedition in the Amazon helped to develop aerial photographic analysis. The stories of explorers like Heinrich Harrer and Laszlo Almasy, better known as the «English Patient», are retold using spectacular pictures and footage from places like India, Egypt and Peru.
