Der Ötztal-Mann und seine Welt

The Iceman of Oetztal-Valley and His World

A severely injured man lies in the snow-capped mountains, the next settlement, which could offer warmth and shelter from the wind and snow, is too far to reach on foot. In a flashback, the dying man relives the last year of his life - a life full of adventure, danger and his daily struggle to survive in a harsh and frightening world. Austrian director Kurt Mündl has given a face to the 5300-year-old mummy found preserved in the ice of the Oetztal Alps in 1991 and recreated his world. This spectacular depiction of the Iceman's Neolithic world is based on intensive scientific research. The result is an exciting film of a man's life with his clan in the Alps over 5000 years ago.
