The geographical location of Lausanne couldn't be more picturesque: as Olympic capital, built on three hills, at the feet of connoisseurs, it is surrounded by vineyards and provides a clear view to the Alps, which, depending on the weather, are reflected on the surface of the water - an unforgettable panorama. The medieval city centre has many small alleys and boutiques - in contrast to the pulsating modern part of the city - which exert an inspiring influence on business people and creative craftspersons alike.
From MacGillivray Freeman Films, producers of the blockbuster hit Everest, comes the giant screen story of THE ALPS: its breathtaking beauty, harmonious culture, perilous avalanches and irresistible allure to a mountaineer on a personal journey to make peace with the mountain that killed his father.
