STICK CLIMBING (14', Austria/Switzerland, 2010, dir: Daniel Zimmermann)
World premiered in Berlinale 2011 and screened in Sundance, Sarajevo, Namur, Hamburg and many others, STICK CLIMBING invites the audience in a dangerous journey: a peaceful contemplative walk through a pastoral village gradually becomes an impossible ascent on an almost vertical rock. The camera seems unimpressed by the breakneck route and keeps on filming even during the perilous climbing which defies gravity. The escape from a conventional, conformist reality seems to be the main theme of this masterful cinematic trip, thought as a 14 minutes one-shot scene, filmed from the POV of an invisible protagonist.
