What happens when some extreme sports people enter into a dialogue with some jazz musicians on the face of a rock? Andreas Pichler documents a project from the Alto Adige South Tyrol Jazz Festival in which climbers and tightrope walkers find their own unique rhythm. If you are not fully concentrated, if you are not present, you have lost. This rule is valid for both musicians and climbers. In an extraordinary symbiosis, jazz musicians accompany climbers and slack liners on their tours. Music is a connecting element between the artists, it serves as a motivator, metronome and pastime. This documentary full of adrenaline deals with the dialogue of various art forms. Official Selections 2015: Trento Film Festival, Cervino Cinemountain International Film Festival, International Festival of Outdoor Films, South Tirol Jazz Festival & DOK.fest Munich.
