"Three Peaks" on the Piazza Grande in Locarno

The MDM-funded film "Three Peaks" will celebrate its world premiere on the Piazza Grande at the 70th Festival del Film Locarno (02.-12.08.2017).

"Three Peaks" is the second feature of director Jan Zabeil who’s debut "The river used to be a man" celebrated its world premiere in Toronto and won a number of international prizes. The family drama is set in the impressive scenery of the Dolomite Alps, starring Alexander Fehling and Bérénice Bejo: Aaron invites his girlfriend Lea and her eight-year-old son, Tristan, on a trip to the mountains. High up in the Three Peaks region of the Dolomites, Aaron and Tristan are faced with their ambivalent love for and deepest fears of one another, while Lea stands in between the two. In his attempt to win the boy's respect, Aaron takes him up the mountain and confronts Tristan with his continuous aggression towards him. When fog sets in and Aaron loses the boy, their power games reach a dangerous level...

"Three Peaks" is a coproduction of Rohfilm Production Leipzig and Echo Film (Italy) and was supported by MDM, Medienboard, SWR, DFFF, BKM and IDM.
