Salzburg - Im Schatten der Felsen (2006)
50min · Documentary · 2 June 2006
An ancient fortress, a historic centre of true baroque, the venue of a legendary stage festival - this is the Salzburg familiar to everyone. But Georg Riha's documentary presents Mozart's city from perspectives never seen before. Unshackled by space and time the viewer enters upon a unique filmic foray into one of the world's most popular cultural centres, discovering the still unknown and hidden beauties of this fascinating city off the beaten tourist tracks. Breath-taking aerials take the viewer soaring above the cathedral and the fortress. Fascinating time-lapse shots put the dimension of time into a new perspective. The highlights in this documentary are truly singular shots with the CAMCAT, the high-tech cable-car tracking system developed by Brains & Pictures.
