Berg (12A)

Tuesday 9 May – Thursday 11 May

Film Details


BERG, an almost entirely silent journey, follows the stories of the stones, rocks and peaks of a vast mountain landscape. Stark black and white images and a minimalistic ambient - at times extraordinarily dramatic - soundtrack draw the viewer into a vibrant, cinematic experience. Just as all sense of scale is lost amidst this raw and primal trip across the panorama of the mountains, we see three small human figures – hikers tackling the peak. Following their journey throughout the film, against rising and hanging fog, thunderstorm and falling rain, we experience first-hand the overwhelming power of nature and the insignificance of man within it.
