PEAK

Part of the 'From the Mountains to the Sea' programme – a collaboration with the Royal Anthropological Institute
Dir: Hannes Lang
Germany / Italy / 2011 / 86mins

Skiing. One of the most popular leisure activities in the winter: perfect powder snow, 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.

FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE SEA
The Royal Anthropological Institute, in partnership with Bertha DocHouse, presents From the Mountains to the Sea, a curated double bill on climate change and film. From the coastal areas of Bangladesh to Alpine ski resorts, local populations are having to respond to weather events that threaten their livelihoods and economies. Through elegant photography and poignant storytelling, both films powerfully show the human impact of a changing climate in very different environments.

Check out Are You Listening! also screening in From the Mountains to the Sea. 

With thanks to Royal Anthropological Institute.
