DER ALTE MANN UND DIE BERGE
LUTZ MAURER, Hans Peter Stauber
Austria / 1995 / 43'
Joseph Braunstein, who is 103 years old today, talks about his life. At the beginning of the century he was one of the greatest Austrian alpinists, having climbed over 60 four thousands. The film is a long interview in which Joseph Braunstein’s extraordinary personality emerges from his story of the events of his life. For this interview he returned to his homeland once again “with a trembling heart” he admits as the plane departs.
