North Face (at the Bridge and at the Shattuck Cinemas)
Director: Philipp Stölzl with Benno Fürmann, Johanna Wokalek, Florian Lukas, Simon Schwarz, Georg Friedrich, Ulrich Tukur, Germany, Austria, 2008, DVD, color 121 min, German with English subtitles
Few people may remember the story of Toni Kurz and Andi Hinterstoisser, but many will find their own reflection in these characters – not only alpinists and nature lovers, but anyone still searching for their path in life. With North Face, director and writer Phillipp Stölzl - known for his music videos for Ramstein and Madonna - reinvents the genre of the “Bergfilm“ (mountain film).
