German première of “Langtang”
“Langtang”, the third film in the Kilian Jornet’s Summits of My Life project begins a round of screenings around the world. People in various countries will have the opportunity to enjoy the film and also to contribute to the charitable project in Nepal.
Following the official presentation in Barcelona last December, Stuttgart will be the next stop when “Langtang” will get its German première on March 30. The film’s three main protagonists Kilian Jornet, Seb Montaz and Jordi Tosas will be there to share with the public their experiences in Nepal while making the film. The event will be presented by Olympic Medalist in Cross Country Skiing Peter Schlickenrieder, now a TV commentator.
The screening starts at 20h30 in the Wagenhallen hall in the capital of Baden-Württemberg, in south-west Germany. The screening is part of the Salomon O.U.T. festival and other films produced by the French company will be shown. Langtang, which tells the story of the team in Nepal in the days following the earthquake that rocked the country, will be the final film in the event.
As well as documenting the journey, the film also pays homage to the generosity of the Nepalese people. As at the presentation in Barcelona, all proceeds from the event will go towards the charity project launched by Summits of My Life and the NGO SOS Himalaya which aims to rebuild 116 houses in the Langtang valley in Nepal.
Around 450 spectators are expected. Tickets are available online for €8 at out.salomon.com
