Focus on the Documentary

A journey at high altitude seen through the eyes of three mysteriously connected hikers. After their coincidental meeting we follow these three on their personal odysseys.

In Detail

Stark black and white images and a minimalistic soundtrack draw the viewer into a vibrant, intense, cinematic experience.

Just as all sense of scale is lost amidst this raw and primal cinematic trip across the panorama of the mountains, we see three small human figures - hikers tackling the peak. Following their journey throughout the film, against rising and hanging fog, thunderstorm and falling rain, we experience first-hand the overwhelming power of nature and the insignificance of man within it.

The multiple levels on which the documentary works are Berg's great strength.
