«The Modified Landscape»
The first things that caught the eye of filmmakers Julia Gutweniger and Florian Kofler were strange-looking walls in the Alpine landscape. On closer examination they turned out to be part of an extensive safety infrastructure which has been developed to provide protection from landslides, avalanches and snowfalls throughout the Alpine region. There is no commentary, and a (sometimes wry) distance is maintained, as SAFETY123 investigates the assiduous human striving to provide us with sound protection against acts of God.
