A visual experiment based on long, mostly static, carefully composed black and white shots. Three tourists climbing a mountain. We see them only as unidentifiable dots that never emerge from distant anonymity because the film’s protagonist is not the climbers, but the mountain itself. The snow-covered valleys, eroded rock formations, and majestic peaks are depicted in crystal-clear black and white. Adapting to the elements is crucial in the hope that the mountain will let you continue. But the majestic slow flow of images is abruptly interrupted by archive footage of a rescue team. The minimalist soundscape mixes wind, buzzing insects, gurgling water, and thunderstorms into a strange symphony. The film is an aesthetic experience with meditative undertones.
