    The beckoning silence Vod

    The beckoning silence

    Louise Osmond (2007)

    Joe Simpson, whose battle for survival featured in 'Touching the Void', travels to the Eiger to tell the story of one of mountaineering's most epic tragedies. Toni Kurz was a brilliant mountaineer who in 1936 tried to be the first to conquer the north face of the Eiger. The climb started well, but disaster struck and Kurz's climbing colleagues were killed, leaving him alone and fighting for his life. The Beckoning Silence recounts Kurz's heroic battle for survival but it also forces Simpson to confront some fundamental questions of his own. Why continue climbing when you have come so close to oblivion?

    Die Jaspers

    Die Jaspers

    Andreas Köstler (2017)

    The Jaspers, are almost a normal family. The Jaspers are Robert and Daniela, their children Stephan and Amelie and the Tibetan Terrier Denga. They would go through everyday life as a normal family if it weren't for the past and the present. If it weren't for these abysses. Robert Jasper is an extreme mountaineer, still one of the best in the world. In his film 'Die Jaspers - eine Familie am Abgrund', SWR filmmaker Andreas Köstler paints a portrait of a family for whom the unknown on the mountain has a very special charm, without their blue-eyed, life-threatening adventures.
