    Makalu

    Makalu

    Carlo Alessandro Rossi (2001)

    The ascent of Makalu (8.463 m) in Nepal, in the heart of the Himalayas, is among the most coveted for alpinists, not only for the long approach march to the foot of the mountain, but also for the great technical effort required to climb it. Abele Blanc, an Alpine guide of Aymavilles in Aosta Valley, made the climb with two South Tyrolean alpinists from Prato Stelvio (Bolzano), Paul Stephan Andres and Christian Kuntner. The whole of the expedition was filmed by Kuntner and Blanc with their digital camcorders.

    The secret Kirghizistan

    The secret Kirghizistan

    Filippo Salvioni (2015)

    The film takes us, together with Luca Schiera and Matteo De Zaiacomo, to a remote and little-known country. 'But there are only two of you'? This is the question that a Russian expedition made welcoming the two youngsters in the valley of the Big Wall. With the satellite that they only took at the top of the walls, and therefore practically useless, Luca and Matteo lived a real adventure, of great alpine value (the 'usual' alpine style in free and visible climbing on the Big Wall that Luca also searched for and found in Oman, Patagonia and of course at Uli Biaho with Matteo Della Bordella and SIlvan Schupbach) and at the same time of great human depth for contact with the locals.

    The great crossing

    Stefan Fritsche (2014)

    The quartet with Tamara and Hansjörg Lunger and the two Austrian camermen Matthias Aberer and Stefan Fritsche will be crossing the Braldu glacier in Pakistan with pulke sleds from 31 March 2013. At the beginning the feat seemed to be completely unsuccessful, as large crevasses and huge seracs set them on the way making even just approaching the mountains almost impossible. Nevertheless, on April 10, the group managed to acclimatize by climbing a mountain (5619m) in the Braldu area.

    Magico Est

    Magico Est

    Elio Orlandi (1988)

    A film shot during the first ascent of a Trentino expedition to the huge wall of the central tower of Paine. The filming reflects without preventive preparations and without subsequent reconstructions the true reality of this wonderful strip of Patagonia. The characteristic scenes shot on the wall and often in harsh and extreme conditions, in a harsh environment, are contrasted with images of a wonderful and unique nature, the undisputed kingdom of the great mountaineers.
