    Markus Pucher

    Markus Pucher

    Gerald Salmina (2017)

    There are only a few climbers who are able to move as fast and as safe in steep ice falls, hardly anyone undertakes as many difficult solos as he does. The small borderline between performance and suffering on the one side, and responsibility for himself and his family on the other, is still a challenge for Markus Pucher. In the last years, the Carinthian athlete has developed to be one of the best all-round mountaineers of present time.

    Der Dachstein

    Tom Dauer (2017)

    The Dachstein, 2,995 m high and exactly on the border between Styria and Upper Austria - and thus the highest mountain of both federal states. The documentary presents this natural beauty in overwhelming pictures. The mountain guide Heli Putz, who grew up on the Simony hut, crosses the mountains with different mountain partners and in different disciplines. As varied as the mountains themselves. The documentary stages the beauty of nature in overwhelming images.

    Die grossen Nordwände

    Die grossen Nordwände

    Gerald Salmina (2016)

    North faces are the epitome of extreme mountaineering. This is particularly true of the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses, Piz Badile, Großer Zinne, Petit Dru and the Drei Zinnen - in the 20th century they embodied the goals a mountaineer must have set himself in order to belong to the elite. To this day, they are playgrounds of extremes. The documentary shows the large north faces of the Alps from a surprising perspective. World-renowned top mountaineers such as Hansjörg Auer, Alexander Huber and Robert Jasper demonstrate the art of climbing at the highest level with first ascents and solo ascents.

    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.

    Der Großglockner

    Der Großglockner

    Tom Dauer (2016)

    Since the first ascent in 1800, the Grossglockner has played an important role in the development of alpinism. To this day it is of great importance for tourism in the region and, with over 5000 summits a year, a popular destination for mountaineers and other sportsmen. On foot, by bike or with the snow blowers during the winter clearing we set off on our way to Austria's highest peak.

    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.

    Das Matterhorn - Vom Mythos zur Marke

    Das Matterhorn - Vom Mythos zur Marke

    Gerald Salmina (2015)

    On 14 July 1865 the Matterhorn was first climbed. Bergwelten takes this event as an opportunity to take a look at the most exciting events on the most famous mountain in the Alps. From the first summit ascent, the first ascent of the north face in 1931 and the legendary winter solo entrance of the Italian Walter Bonatti in 1965, to the unique achievements of today's mountaineers. The film impresses with spectacular climbing shots and unique shots of the film work in the wall. And it accompanies people whose lives are inseparably linked to the unique mountain on the Swiss-Italian border. The Zermatt mountain guide Michi Lerjen grew up on the Swiss side of the mountain. Hervé Barmasse, on the other hand, comes from the Italian side - as a scion of a mountain guide family, he knows the Matterhorn better than anyone else.

    Memento

    Gerald Salmina (2006)

    What happens when a crazy moviemaker meets a crazy boulderer and they decide to make a movie together? You could call it preprogrammed chaos, or the beginning of a joint vision. Camera work and direction show bouldering in a unique style. The philosophy and climbing artistry of Bernd Zangerl top the film off. Each of the locations -- Ticino, Magic Wood and the Silvretta Mountains -- has its own character, style and ambiance.
