Netherlands 2021 – Director: Joke Olthaar – Original language: Croatian, Czech, Hungarian – Subtitles: English
Pure nature in beguilingly beautiful black and white footage underlaid with a minimalistic soundscape. With BERG you don’t have to go into the mountains to be immersed in the landscape. BERG is a one-of-a-kind mountain experience. A fascinating, immersive and transcendental film that is not quickly forgotten. Monika Haas
