A film by Nikolaus Geyrhalter
A 2025, 90 min.
MELT is a film about snow and ice, which will soon no longer exist. Climate change is melting the poles and the glaciers.
Greenland, the Arctic and Antarctica, the Alps and other high mountains that are currently still covered in snow all year round - in all these places the loss of mass has long since begun and is being observed, measured and predicted as helpless measures that cannot prevent what probably seems inevitable.
MELT is a film about life and research in snow and ice, about changing landscapes and lost homelands; MELT observes everyday situations as well as research expeditions with snow vehicles.
MELT is a film about the present and yet it also fulfills the "documenting" in a historical dimension: just like the flooded coastal areas, future generations will perhaps only hear about the eternal ice from films like this one.
