Upon that Mountain

DOCUMENTARY (org. Montanario, Italy, 2023, 67’)


A year along the Italian cableway on the Mont Blanc massif. The machine, the workers and the users are represented as the main actors in a show designed to push the limits of the nature. While depicting the everyday routines and the behavior of the sightseers, the film explores the relationship between technology, tourism and mountaineering, cities and modernity, observation and image, representation and experience.
