Air and Earth (film)
where the mountains touch the sky

In 1996 the production of a film adaptation of ‘Luft und Erde’ (1994) was started. Meeting obstacles at every step in the process, from scheduling conflicts to snow storms during filmshoots, the destruction of the film and video footage due to a flood, put the project into limbo. Astonishingly in late 2008, parts of the original footage and some duplicate versions were found amoungst archival media. A completed version of the project is scheduled for 2009.
