Can ski or snowboard films offer more than breathtaking pictures?
Elias: Sports films should first and foremost be fun. But we have a big platform, we should use it. Our films are a chance to create new narratives. I believe this is the greatest contribution we can make.
You spend a lot of time in nature. What has changed since you started 20 years ago?
Stefan: Of course I can see that from the five glaciers which I regularly visit. They have shrunk massively, not just in recent years.
Elias: In the ski resorts in the Allgäu, where I grew up or behind the house, where I learned to snowboard, sufficient snow is no longer a certainty. But the social climate is also changing. We grew up in a totally apolitical time. From today's perspective, I think that's a pity. So much the better that the younger generation in particular is becoming active now. Sport does not function in isolation from the rest of the world. So we also have to deal with these issues in the films we make.
