Alpi | 1hr : 02mins
Director: Armin Linke | Producer: Armin Linke
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Germany
The images the Alps hold for the (urban) public are those of a world that is pre-modern; a world that is essentially intact, closed into itself, marked by a slow pace, tied to traditions and to a complex of ancient practices. In comparison, we see the region as a unique laboratory of modernity. We undertook many journeys in the alpine region, which, ironically, led us as far as Dubai. The film shows the Alps as a key location, owing to its delicacy and environmental importance, where one can observe and study the complexity of social, economic, and political relationships. In the Europe of today, the Alps are a hotbed for modernity and its illusions.
