Kino-Dokumentarfilm | D-2011 | 90 Min. Als Kameraassistent durfte ich für Hannes Langs Dokumentarfilm in den Alpen mitarbeiten. I worked as a first assistant in the camera department for Hannes Lang`s wonderfull documentary in the european alps. Skiing! One of the most popular leisure activities in the winter: perfect powder snow, sound, mountains, fresh air and après ski. Over the course of one year Peak follows the building and production processes around winter tourism in the Alps and unveils what is otherwise hidden under a thick blanket of artificial snow. The film shows the modification of whole areas and the traces left behind by these man-made interventions. Peak challenges the relation between nature and technology. How artificial can a region be, or how artificial does it have to be in order to satisfy our vocational desires for fun and recreation?
