    Tupendeo - Ein Berg, zwei Geschichten

    Robert Steiner (2016)

    While they are intent on reaching the peak of the Tupendeo, in Kashmir, Stephan Siegrist and Thomas Senf find themselves face to face with a mystery: they find a rope for the descent, but the tracks disappear shortly afterward. Their research will lead them to reconstruct a dramatic episode that has been forgotten. This is the story of two attempts on a mountain in the remote Kishtwar region of the Indian Himalaya, separated by many years, outcome, and emotion.

    Riders on the Storm

    Riders on the Storm

    Franz Walter (2016)

    Ines Papert and Mayan Smith-Gobat, accompanied by their photographer friends Thomas Senf and Franz Walter, attempt to free climb 'Riders on the storm', in the extremely difficult east face of Torre Central del Paine, Patagonia. The route was first climbed by Wolfgang Güllich, Kurt Albert, Bernd Arnold, Peter Dittrich and Norbert Bätz in January 1991 in 15 days of climbing over a five-week period. This stunning line on the sheer 1300m east face of Torre Central line went at 7c, A3. The climbing is very varied and demanding, ranging from delicate and runout face climbing to wide cracks and roofs, which were often entirely iced up. As yet, there have been no free ascents of this route, though many strong climbers have tried.

    Flying High - Härtetest am Everest

    Christian Schmidt (2013)

    Valery Rozov, extreme BASE jumper and Russian wingsuit pilot, is determined to set the record for the highest BASE jump and relative wingsuit flight ever made. Rozov is taking part in a 40-day expedition from Kathmandu to Tibet, together with his team of climbers, guides and porters, to the Mount Everest massif. Although the summit of Everest is not steep enough to launch in a wingsuit, a cornice on the northern side of the mountain offers the opportunity to take flight at 7220 meters above sea level. Rozov spent two years planning and testing this flight, taking measurements and meticulously searching for the perfect suit that would allow him to jump into the void.

    Über dem Wolf's Tooth

    Über dem Wolf's Tooth

    Cengiz Tanc (2011)

    Russian Base jumper Valery Rozov’s jumping adventure from Mount Ulvetanna, one of the highest peaks of Antarctica. Valery Rozov and his team go to the the Drygalski Mountains in Queen Maud Land, a place of extreme conditions where humans can fly. Here after weeks of preparation, Rozov conquers the almost vertical wall soaring 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) into the sky. What follows is pure adrenaline: for nearly one minute Rozov hurtles down the sheer rock-face before he pulls his chute open to make a safe landing. This is the first jump from one of the most difficult peaks in this icy desert. This is a 25 minutes version of the original 'Over the Wolf's Tooth', shortened for the Highlights series of the austrian ServusTV.

    Berge im kopf

    Matthias Affolter (2014)

    The mountains are both an escape and a place of refuge for four generations of mountaineers. The film shows us their passion and the questions associated with their way of life. With Jacques Grandjean, we strain to reach alpine crystals in brittle rock on sheer rock faces. On the north face of the Gross Ruchen, we hear extreme climber Dani Arnold cursing in the windstorm. We accompany Stefan Siegrist on his expedition to Makalu’s western pillar in Nepal. Werner Munter, more than 70 years old, is still searching for new routes in the remotest areas of Val d’Hérens. Searching for the right path, the four guides face fundamental questions which concern us all: How much am I willing to risk to make my dreams come true? How much risk do you need in life?
