    Un ocean de sommets

    Stefan Girres (2018)

    Alexandre and Valentin are brothers. One is passionate about the sea, the other about mountains. They didn’t really connect when they grew up, that’s life… But they won’t let life choose their path so when they decided it was time to get to know each other, they didn’t go to the restaurant; they bought a boat, repaired it and planned a four month long trip from France to Greenland, passing by Norway and Iceland to ski and climb mountains. With two other team-members, an incredible journey began as they learned to navigate their sailing ship from one storm to another, through icebergs along gigantic cliffs.

    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.
