The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

A subtle safety net runs through the Alps, hidden from the gazes of those who are ignorant of it. Clothed peaks, experiments with falling objects weighing several tons, training, and courses in preparation for an emergency. Here is where Julia Gutweniger and Florian Kofler positioned their camera on the fine line between disaster prevention, risk management, and a fascination with the apocalyptic spectacle.
