    K2 - The Impossible Descent

    Slawomir Batyra (2020)

    The Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel re-wrote history on the K2 (8.611m summit), the infamous Himalayan peak, the world’s second-highest mountain. On July 22nd, 2018 he summited K2 without oxygen and skied from peak to base without removing his skis – a seemingly impossible challenge which had never been completed before or since. The 60h+ ascent of K2 alone is an extraordinary achievement that pushes even the most experienced and highest skilled mountaineers to their limits.

    The Dawn Wall - Behind the scenes

    Josh Lowell (2018)

    The Dawn Wall is the film that documents the first free ascent of the most difficult big wall climb in the world, completed in January 2015 by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson. The true achievement is obviously the first free ascent Dawn Wall, carried out by Tommy and Kevin at the end of 2014 and the start of 2015. But almost equal to that undertaking are the efforts required to document their attempts and progress, for almost an entire decade, up the smooth 1000 meter El Capitan in Yosemite. In this making of video, the guys at Sender Films share some of the strategies they used to push the limits of what’s possible in big-wall filmmaking.

    Die Dolomiten - Juwel Südtirols

    Hubert Schönegger (2017)

    The 'pale mountains' owe their uniqueness to their fascinating appearance. Their peaks, pillars and bizarre towers rise steeply in a spectacular variety of shapes over extensive scree slopes and gentle hills. Their unique diversity of colours results from the contrast between their pale rock faces and the underlying forests and meadows. The documentary focuses on the Dolomites in their uniqueness and the interplay of man and mountain - the Dolomites as a habitat.

    Das Wunder vom Dachstein

    Fritz Kalteis (2017)

    In autumn 1985, an American member of the armed forces, Kenneth T. Czichowicz falls from the Dachstein Mountain and lies, badly injured, on the edge of the glacier. Twenty days and 19 nights cold, hungry, desperate and hallucinating, before he was finally found, more dead than alive. More than three decades later, his son Casey sets off to the Dachstein, tracing the footsteps of his father, which had nearly made him a half-orphan. Instead, it became worldwide famous as the 'Dachstein miracle'. The film starts with the victim’s desperate attempt to gain the attention of a snow-cat driver. At this moment, Kenneth had already survived two weeks after his fall on the edge of the ice, and vainly he had hoped to be discovered. Suffering incredible pains, he drags himself to a place, from where he thinks he must be seen – but in vain.

    Das Ötztal - Tal der Vielfalt und Gegensätze

    Hans-Peter Stauber (2017)

    In the first episode 'Bergwelten on Tour' visits the Ötztal in Tyrol, the longest transverse valley of the Eastern Alps. A valley full of cultural and scenic diversity. It ranges from icy glaciers to gentle meadows, from high alpine rugged landscapes to the mild climate in the valley, from action-packed events to quiet and secluded retreats. Five climatic and scenic zones extend over the almost 70 km of the valley and are reflected accordingly in the cultural breadth of the valley.

    Auf den Spuren der Ersten

    Matthias Mayr (2017)

    The Austrian professional freerider and adventurer Matthias 'Hauni' Haunholder and Matthias Mayr set off to follow the traces of pioneers who had skied down famous Alpine mountains for the first time – and they are impressed. They are even more surprised, when they consider the materials of that time. Observed by a state-of-the-art camera, the two professional skiers try to repeat the partly extremely exposed descents. Due to the climate warming, some ski runs have become even more extreme, or already impossible. They experience thrilling moments on the north face of the Hochfeiler in the Zillertal Alps or in the Pallavicini Gully on the Großglockner.

    100 Jahre Huberbuam

    Werner Bertolan (2017)

    Over three decades, the Huber Boys have become an actual brand, not only in the outdoor community, but also as climbers, mountaineers and as brothers. Since their youngest days, Thomas and Alexander have been embodying a seemingly perfect rope team. It does not surprise that between such different characters with their respective egos, sparks can fly. They live through highs and lows, falls and triumphs. In 2017 the Huber Boys together turned 100 years old. A good moment for an interim balance.

    The white maze

    Matthias Mayr (2016)

    After a whole year of planning, scouting and guesswork, Freeskiers and adventurers Matthias 'Hauni' Haunholder and Matthias Mayr accomplished their personal mission impossible. They skied the 'Gora Pobeda', highest Peak of Eastern Siberia, which had never been attempted before. Gora Pobeda' is known to be a very difficult mountain to ascend, partly because it´s a steep, rocky and icy peak but also because it is so hard to reach. The next village with road access is more than 350 km away. The next helicopter and hospital is 1300 km away in Yakutsk. Beside that it is one of the coldest regions in the world with temperatures dropping below minus 60˚C. The time window to ascend and descend the mountain is very small due to the extreme continental climate.

    Pura vida - Nur das Überleben zählt

    Migueltxo Molina (2015)

    Shortened version for the Bergewlten series of the Spanish documentary 'The ridge'. On the south face of Annapurna, at 7,400 metres, Iñaki Ochoa de Olza is dying. His rope companion sounds the alarm. And, from the other side of the world, the biggest rescue attempt in the history of the Himalayas gets underway. For four days a dozen men including some of the best mountaineers in the world, from ten countries, set out to try to rescue their stricken comrade. Even beyond his peaks Iñaki is an exceptional man. As exceptional as the rescue attempt itself and the men who risked their lives to save him. Exceptional because their one driving rule is to live. To live in the only way possible: with pure intensity and honesty.
