The Rockies

2 x 52' (ENG), 3 x 45'(GER)
They are an everlasting frontier in North America - and for Indians a sacred place of spiritual growth: the Rocky Mountains. 

They have become a leisure paradise and chosen home of a variety of people who seek their lives' adventure in a wonderland of nature. This documentary takes the audience to astonishing landscapes and shares the spirit of life in these mountains reaching from Canada's Yukon all the way to New Mexico. Whether ice climbing in Jasper National Park, heli skiing in the Columbia Mountains or raising buffalo in a remote little side valley - everybody seems to find his own individual rockies experience.

The first part describes the Canadian Rockies. Entirely shot in the wintertime it shows a mountain range of work and play. Part two covers the US Rockies in summer. It shows the landscapes and wildlife of some of the greatest National Parks in America: Montana's Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Great Sand Dunes in Southern Colorado.

More than a hundred years have passed since the gold rush and pioneer spirit led thousands of people into the Rockies. Today they are a still fascinating though fragile world. A world, this HD-documentary will help you to discover.
