Cold Void (Weisse Stille)

After Italy declared war on Germany in 1943, there are parts of the fifth division of German mountaineers in the Austrian-Italian Alps. Small units guard a 260 kilometer long mountain front at 3000 meters above sea level and under most difficult replenishment conditions.

Cold Void tells the story of a group, who under extreme climatic conditions, are cramped together and faced with dwindling rations. The fight for survival puts the men’s camaraderie to the test and the situation among them escalates.

It’s not matter of the heroic deeds of the characters, but rather a search for humanity in personal and moralistic failure.
