Alpinism & Expeditions
Kamera Alpin in Gold 2018
This dual self-portrait before the backdrop of an extreme challenge is one big humble understatement. The joint alpinist achievement of the two protagonists could have been painted in heroic hues. Instead, we see a story of growing trust, mutual respect and unsparing honesty between two exceptional mountaineers. Unusually intimate yet unobtrusive camera work allows the viewer to participate in something completely unexpected: euphoria and outright fun in the context of a winter expedition above 8000 meters. Few camera crews are prepared for such an ordeal and deliver good images under such conditions.
