    Grab in eisigen Höhen

    Grab in eisigen Höhen

    Karsten Scheuren (2008)

    Tyrolean Markus Kronthaler rises his arms to the sky. He stands on the summit of the 8047 meter high Broad Peak. A few moments later he collapses and dies of exhaustion and lack of fluids, only a few metres away from the summit. His brother and companion Georg has to leave the corpse up there. One year later, Georg Kronthaler, together with two friends, the mountain rescuers Paul Koller and Stefan Lackner, and with six Pakistan high altitude porters, comes back to the mountain to pick up his dead brother from the summit of this 8.000m peak. A risky enterprise and a competition against time.

    Gdyby to nie byl Everest

    Gdyby to nie byl Everest

    Stanislaw Jaworski (1981)

    Record of the Polish winter expedition to Mount Everest in 1980, led by Andrzej Zawada. Until then, winter high altitude climbing was thought impossible. That myth was expunged when Leszek Cichy and Krzysztof Wielicki stood at the top of Everest on February 17, 1980. After spending a night at -42 ° C with strong winds, the two left at 6:50 in the morning towards the summit, carrying a small backpack with a bottle of oxygen they barely knew how to use. Two years prior, Messner had shown that high altitude climbing was possible without oxygen, and now the Polish had proven that the mountains could be climbed in winter.

    Bavarian Direct Vod

    Bavarian Direct

    Franz Hinterbrandner (2013)

    The brothers Alex and Thomas Huber, together with the Tyrolean Mario Walder join forces in the summer of 2012 on the island of Baffin to complete the liberation of Bavarian direct (700 m of route and originally ranked as 6b/A3) in the South Tower of Mount Asgard. Its chaining, made in roped style alternating the pitches, places this route in the second step of the difficulty in Arctic rock (with a maximum degree of 8a+, very close to the 8b that the brothers Pou and Hansjörg Auer gave to their 'The door' in Perfection Valley). The Germans solved the pitch left by the Belgians and Silvia Vidal in 2009. In the film the Huber brothers meet the German team that opened the route in 1996 and the Belgian team who almost free-climbed it in 2009.

    Agur Everest

    Agur Everest

    Juan Ignacio Lorente (1981)

    In 1974 the first Basque Everest expedition had to retire 300 meters below the summit because of the monsoon. That first Basque attempt to climb Everest in 1974 left a feeling of frustration to Basque mountaineering. Six years later, in 1980, Martín Zabaleta, together with Sherpa Pasang Temba, members of the second Basque Everest expedition, reach the roof of the world. The film shows images from both expeditions. The first expedition was filmed in 35mm by Fernando Larruquert and Angel Lerma; the second was filmed in Super 16mm by Juan Ignacio Lorente, Martín Zabaleta and other members of the expedition.

    Afghanen an die Spitze

    Afghanen an die Spitze

    Louis Meunier (2011)

    Short version of the film '7000 mètres au dessus de la guerre': Afghanistan is today synonymous with conflict, terrorism and danger. Yet, before the war started, this country of Central Asia was famous for the beauty of its nature. As startling as it is, Mount Noshaq, the highest peak in Afghanistan rising at 7492 meters, has never been climbed by an Afghan citizen. In this documentary, four Afghan mountaineers attempt to do what none of their countrymen dreamt possible: to be the first Afghans to set foot on the top of Mount Noshaq. Their goal: to send a message of hope and peace to their war-torn country. This short version omits the first part of the original film, in which the team is trained in the Mont Blanc Massif.
