PRINCE OF THE ALPS (DER PRINZ DER ALPEN)
PRINCE OF THE ALPS (Austria, 2007, 53 min.)
Nature reveals a breathtaking view into the world of a red deer calf as he struggles to survive in Prince of the Alps. From the moment he is born, a red deer calf faces a life-long struggle to survive in his new home — the mountain wilderness of the Austrian Alps. Featuring panoramic scenes of lush landscapes, Prince of the Alps travels high into the mountains, where chamois and ibex are right at home on the nearly vertical cliffs, marmots emerge late from hibernation, and red deer prove their agility. The little prince’s first six weeks are filled with exploration and discovery of his world, under the watchful eye of his mother. When he is ready, he and his mother journey along age-old migration paths from the forests up to the high mountain meadows, where the beginning of summer brings life and renewal to the slopes. There, they join other red deer mothers and their calves. The stags have already arrived, their antlers covered in tender velvet — and growing quickly. Directed by Klaus Feichtenberger.
