Pepe Danquart (Deutschland) - 94 min

Wednesday, 07. Nov. 2007 from 15:00 in Schubertkino       

The „Huberbuam“ are well known. Alexander and Thomas Huber are two of the world’s best extreme and alpine climbers of our time. The Oscar® price winner Pepe Danquart follows these climbers with his camera up to heights where noone has filmed before and accompanies them in their attempt to break the record in speed climbing in the “Nose”, the 1,000 m granite wall of “El Capitan” in the Yosemite Valley (California, USA). “Am Limit” shows breath-taking, thrilling pictures on the limit of what is physically and psychologically possible. Alexander and Thomas Huber go to all extremes, driven by the strong will to overcome their limits and fears and to accept the resulting challenges. Two brothers on the quest of finding their limits.
