Austria - Above and below
Breathtaking images of the Austrian landscape with the narrative voice of Michael Niavarani.
Peter Vilsmaier composes impressive images with his experienced helicopter pilot, Hans Ostler - from a perspective from which Austria has never been seen before. But Vilsmaier is not content with the power of aerial shots, he gets closer, creates intimacy: at the Almabtrieb, the Erzbergrodeo, the Funkenabbrennen, the Pop Fest Karlsplatz, the Beach Volleyball Grand Slam at Lake Wörthersee, the Salzburg Festival or at the Sonnwendfeuer in the picturesque cultural landscape of the Wachau. The coexistence of landscape, tradition, technical innovation and vibrant life creates a different, emotional Austria, a country as if newly created from the artist's perspective. The world musician Hubert von Goisern brings great emotions, passion for his art and his alpine roots. A touching, stirring musical counterpart to the cinematic experiences, reaching far into the past and pointing to the future.
