Hände zum Himmel

Short Documentary Film, AT 2013, 18 min, OmeU
Program: RAUSCH: Hände zum Himmel + Vollgas

Holiday, relaxation, lack of inhibitions. Vodka shots, cigs, and one-night stands. In Sabine Derflinger’s feature film Vollgas, the aprés ski machinery is still running at its pre-pandemic, well-oiled peak. The short documentary Hände zum Himmel, on the other hand, shows the touristic Tyrol from its spiritual side. Hansi Hinterseer, a legendary ski racer and hit singer extends an invitation to a relaxing mountain mass on Kitzbühel’s Hahnenkamm. Sensually uninhibited here, searching for meaning there.
