    Still alive - Drama am Mt. Kenya

    Reinhold Messner (2016)

    September 5th, 1970: Oswald Ölz and Gert Judmaier, two young Austrian climbers, have just left the summit of Mount Kenya (at 5,199 m, the second highest mountain in Africa) and begin their climb back down the North Face. Suddenly, a rock breaks loose from the cliff face and sends Judmaier plummeting downwards. With his leg severely injured, there is no chance of getting him down the mountain to medical attention any time soon. What starts now, is the first intercontinental rescue mission organized from Innsbruck. After seven days, Gert Judmaier can finally be recovered from the cliff wall and flown to the University Hospital in Innsbruck. More than 40 years later, Prof. Oswald Ölz and Prof. Gert Judmaier are once again on their way to Mount Kenya, this time to celebrate the success of the 1970 rescue mission.

    Das Wunder vom Dachstein

    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.

    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.

    The summit

    Nick Ryan (2012)

    K2 is the second-highest peak in the world but is renowned as the most dangerous -- and revered by mountaineers as their ultimate challenge. In August 2008, 18 climbers reached the summit of K2. Forty-eight hours later, 11 people were dead. What happened on that fateful day has never been fully resolved. Utilizing found footage, realistic reenactments, and interviews with survivors, The Summit zigzags back and forth in time, interweaving multiple narrative threads and piecing together events that took place that day—one of the deadliest in mountain-climbing history. With the help of breath-taking cinematography, director Nick Ryan creates a tension-filled, experiential film that will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
