Arnold Fanck’s classic film The Holy Mountain (Der Heilige Berg) turns to the sublime force of the landscape as the backdrop for an intense, triangular love story.  Starring Leni Riefenstahl and the German Alps, this film offers a chance to discuss the ways that humans interact with and depict inhospitable environments and the implications this may have— both for Riefenstahl’s later propaganda films, and the changing roles nature plays as both a “background” and a main character in modern cinema. (Screened in German with English subtitles)
