Three walkers are insignificant dots in an overpowering mountain landscape. Mist, wind, snow and storm: nature is not to be trifled with. Berg is an ode to the mysterious power of the mountains set to the rhythm of a soundscape made up of natural sounds.
At first we can clearly see and hear the three mountaineers preparing for a climb. They talk about their expectations in voice-over. Fifteen minutes later we see them again, as insignificant dots in an overpowering mountain landscape.
