FILM TIP: “A YEAR IN THE KAUNERTAL – PAST AND PRESENT 

If you would like to find out more about the Kaunertal, we warmly recommend the documentary “A year in the Kaunertal – Past and Present”. Filmmaker Thomas Junker and producer Charly Hafele, senior manager at Weisseespitze, sketch a vibrant image of every day life in the Kaunertal, both past and present, based on the tales of contemporary witnesses.  

BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE FILM

The film and the accompanying, audiovisual archive of contemporary witness testimonies preserve and convey the Kaunertal’s cultural and societal heritage, containing everyday stories both great and small. The collection has sentimental and touristic value that answers some questions and asks others. Dedicated to today’s and future generations in the Kaunertal, this collection is a unique document of alpine life.


The film was shot from January 2013 until December 2015. The team also used additional content gained from the scientific findings of local chronicler Martin Frey.

Local colour: Kaunertal archive of contemporary witness testimonies

The filmmaker and producer collected more interviews with contemporary witnesses that exceed the film. In 2019, the Kaunertal archive of contemporary witness testimonies now holds more than 100 video interviews, which can be accessed by all interested persons.
