22nd TDF: Greek Premiere

Simulations, measurements, tests, endless hours devoted to predicting the unforeseen and mitigating an impending disaster. The human struggle against the cruel whims of fate has a Sisyphean quality to it: it’s never-ending, it’s insufficient by nature, but at the end of the day it’s the best we can do. A commentary-free stunning visual journey through the Alps that pays tribute to the work and research of scientists and technicians striving to design a flawless security system against landslides, avalanches, and floods. A slow-paced observational documentary that celebrates man’s refusal to give up when survival is on the line.
