Lobende Erwähnung 2017

With a wink and razor-sharp observation, the filmmaker manages to give a touching insight into the changes our planet undergoes and their impact on the everyday life of mankind.

In Bolivia, the glaciers are melting. Samuel, an old ski lift operator, is looking out of a window on the rooftop of the world. Through generations his family lived and worked in the snowy mountains, but nowadays snow is rare. While scientists are discussing ominous changes in precipitation Samuel honours the ancient mountain spirits.
