Top of Europe

A film by Robert Schabus
A 2020, 90 min.
in Development


Between not yet deserted alps in Austria, dying villages such as Viganella in Italy and tourism hubs such as Les Trois Vallées in France, TOP OF EUROPE  will embark on a search for people that live in the Alpine region and are part of these different worlds.

This journey is set to be highly personal, close to the people and close to the landscape, both the cultural and natural – an image of becoming and fading, holding on and letting go. An image of dislocation and feasible attempts for adjustment. An image of our society in a region that extends across eight European countries and, owing to its topology, demands special attention.
