PEAK Trailer


The Alps are an ancient region of natural beauty that is changing as a result of climate change. Snow is no longer guaranteed. PEAK shows how the tourist industry is dealing with the problem. Millions are invested into massive technology to produce the perfect landscape independent from nature. High-altitude water reservoirs replace melting glaciers, excavators rip up the earth, a computer operated switch room lies deep in the mountain, pipes and cables are laid in the ground, snow machines continuously spray artificial snow onto slopes. A neverending story taking place in the Alps, but with parallels worldwide. Hannes Lang, Germany & Italy, subtitled, 2011

Programmed in conjunction with the Anthropocene Reading Group speaker Nicole Seymour, on campus to discuss her book Bad Environmentalism: Irony and Irreverence in the Ecological Age hosted by The Leslie Center For the Humanities.
