    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.

    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.

    An American ascent

    George Potter (2016)

    An American Ascent documents the first African American expedition to tackle Denali, North America's highest peak and explores the complex relationship many African-Americans have with the outdoors. As the United States transitions to a 'minority majority' nation, a staggering number of people of color do not identify with America's wild places. By embarking on the grueling multi-week climb of the 20,327ft Denali, nine African-American climbers set out to bridge this 'adventure gap' - challenging outdated notions of what adventure looks like by changing the face of America's biggest and baddest mountain on the 100th anniversary of its first summit.

    K2 and the invisible footmen

    Iara Lee (2015)

    Statistically, for every four climbers who summits K2, one of them will die, and the mountain has the second highest fatality rate among the world's highest peaks. 'It's the father of all mountains...one mistake and you're dead', warns one climber. As the climbing season only lasts from May through to August, porters must make enough money in these months to support themselves through the rest of the year. 'It's difficult to make ends meet... there is no other source of income', complains one: of his seven children, he can only afford to send two of them to school.

    Orbayu

    Mathieu Rivoire (2016)

    In Spain, in the Naranjo de Bulnes sector of the Picos de Europa National Park hide the Orbayus... One is the characteristic mist, or thin fog, that often settles and hangs on the slopes, soaking every little thing all the way through. The other is a daunting climb. At 2000 meters elevation it winds upward for 500 more in thirteen stunning pitches, a crux at 8c and overwhelming exposure. In spring 2014, Cedric Lachat and Nina Caprez made their attempt where, on the Orbayu, success hinges on an intricate and complex balance of the psyche.
