Symphony on Skis

Symphony on Skis

An adventurous ski tour of two sisters, who follow the tracks of their father, across the pristine landscape of New Zealand. 30 years ago, Gottlieb Braun-Elwert set out on an un-chartered expedition. He conquered the major glaciers of the Southern Alps and crossed 40km and 4000 vertical meters, from the heart of the South Island to the Pacific in just 18 hours. A route of astonishing beauty, immense freedom, breathtaking vistas and the danger of the uncontainable nature. He called this route “Symphony on Skis”. Now, his daughters Carla, Elke and a small team of adventurers embark on the same adventure. This film is a homage to their late father who found a love and home in New Zealand's Southern Alps.
