Mysterious Places - Untersberg
Some people call it ‘The Mountain That Eats Men”. The Untersberg rises over 2000m above the provincial town of Salzburg and has been captivating its citizens for centuries. The mountain is believed to be a sacred 'power place' where supernatural events occur on a regular basis. People disappear for decades only to suddenly return with loss of memory, some see strange plays of light others encounter dwarfs or giants. Legend goes that Emperor Karl the Great sleeps deep within the mountain, in giant marble caverns only to return once the crows stop flying to fight the ultimate battle against the antichrist.
The film focuses on tree protagonists who's lives are deeply entwined with the mountain and its legends. A catholic priest who lives in the shadow of the Untersberg and has adapted ancient beliefs into his every day preaching, an artist who searches for the ultimate master piece and a scientist who's mission is to uncover the truth behind the myth by embarking on a harrowing journey deep into the cave system of the Untersberg.
