The beginning of gravity or the fateful journey of a noble family and their servants across the Alpsa film by Thomas Woschitz
Am Anfang der Schwerkraft oder die schicksalhafte Reise einer noblen Familie und ihrer Dienerschaft über die Berge
FEATURE FILM | 2019 | 110 min
Sometime in the 17th century, a noble family sets out to cross the Alps with a retinue of servants and six horse-drawn coaches, accompanied by both mounted and foot soldiers to protect the cavalcade from waylaying thieves. Yet a thunderstorm followed by the arrogance of the mighty disrupt the fragile balance of things: the hierarchy of sovereignty, the people and their beliefs and, not least, their route of passage. This is a story about power and powerlessness, faith and knowledge, and the fact that in the end, gravity always gets you down.
