Q&A with director Joke Olthaar and director of photography André Schreuders

BERG is a visual experience of a vast mountain landscape and the insignificance of man in it.

A trip of concentrated black and white images with a minimalistic soundtrack forms a primal memory of a universal mythical mountain.

A journey at high altitude seen through the eyes of three mysteriously connected hikers. After their coincidental meeting we follow these three on their personal odysseys.

'For lovers of minimalist cinema it will be a treat' – Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
