Austria 2023 – Director: Bernhard Braunstein – Original language: German – Subtitles: None
Stams is an Austrian winter sports training centre. Those who apply here want to get to the top. The film follows the young athletes over the course of a year: in training, in lessons, at competitions and dealing with the ever-present injuries. The school works as an organism for performance optimisation. Every day is about pushing personal boundaries. Fascinating and close to the limit. Ysabel Fantou
