Messner

105' (GER, FRE, ENG subs)
Feature documentary about the leading mountaineer of our time.

This psychogram is as much about Messner's personality as it is about his extraordinary exploits. Climbing scenes and aerial filming of impressive mountain landscapes are being complemented by emotional interviews. Unique archive material completes the picture of a man who considers himself as a „conqueror of the useless“.

He has left his marks on modern alpinism like nobody else and stands for the transgression of formerly accepted limits, also intellectually. Shot on original locations, this film tells the universal theme of overcoming fear, coping with failure and surmounting obstacles. Climbing scenes in vintage equipment and aerial filming of impressive mountain landscapes are being complemented by emotional interviews.
