MOUNTAIN – TRAILER

Fino a tre secoli fa, la sola idea di scalare una montagna rasentava la follia. Non era contemplato il fatto che territori selvaggi potessero contenere qualsiasi tipo di attrazione. Le cime erano luoghi di pericolo, non di bellezza. Perché, oggi, siamo così attratti dalla montagna? MOUNTAIN ci mostra la sua forza incantatrice e il suo continuo potere di plasmare la nostra vita e i nostri sogni.

Millions are now enchanted by the magic of mountains. And where once their remoteness protected their purity, mountains have today become theatres for recreation: managed and commodified as parks and playgrounds. But mountains are so much more than an escape, or an enemy to be overcome. Their greatest value lies in their power to inspire wonder and awe: to remind us of the limits of our schemes and ambition. 

MOUNTAIN è un’esplorazione folgorante della nostra ossessione per le montagne, una straordinaria collaborazione cinematografica e musicale tra Jen Peedom, la regista di Sherpa, e Richard Tognetti, direttore artistico dell’Australian Chamber Orchestra, a cui hanno partecipato anche Renan Ozturk, lo scrittore inglese Robert Macfarlane e l’attore Willem Dafoe.


A unique cinematic and musical collaboration between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and BAFTA-nominated director Jennifer Peedom, MOUNTAIN is a dazzling exploration of our obsession with mountains. Only three centuries ago, climbing a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Peaks were places of peril, not beauty. Why, then, are we now drawn to mountains in our millions? MOUNTAIN shows us the spellbinding force of high places – and their ongoing power to shape our lives and our dreams.
