It was the longest and most varied film project I‘ve taken part in so far: Manaslu – Berg der Seelen (Manaslu – Mountain of Spirits), the life and climbs of South Tyrolean star mountaineer Hans Kammerlander (7 8000-metre peaks with Reinhold Messner, 1st ski descents of Nanga Parbat and Everest and much else).
For the main movie I was responsible for props, archival research and consulting – and have two cameo appearances. Besides that I worked as director for the „Making Of“ (the film of the filming of the film) and in the course of this travelled with the team to Manaslu in autumn 2017.
Cinema release is on December 14, 2018 (Austria & South Tyrol), and January 3, 2019 (Germany); the Making Of will be broadcast at Servus TV on December 10, 2018, at 8.15 pm.
