Leap – Melanie Manchot

LEAP (2011) observes a range of physical and psychological situations in the quest for a brief moment of perfection. Based around an annual worldcup event and set on the world’s largest natural skijump, LEAP was filmed during December 2010 in the high alpine valley of Engelberg, Switzerland. Inspired by Werner Herzog’s film ‘The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner’ (1974), the film charts the intense preparations for the event, both in terms of the physicality of the site and the individuals involved.
Sadly, only a trailer here:
