Director: Hannes Lang
Snow is no longer guaranteed in the Alps. PEAK shows how the tourist industry is dealing with the problem. Millions are invested into massive technology to produce the perfect landscape independent from nature. High-altitude water reservoirs replace melting glaciers, excavators rip up the earth, a computer operated switch room lies deep in the mountain, pipes and cables are laid in the ground, snow machines continuesly spray artificial snow onto slopes. A never-ending story taking place in the Alps, but with parallels worldwide. A theatrical masterpiece in Cinemascope.
