An interview with PHILIPP STOLZL the director of NORTH FACE. Based on a true story, North Face is a suspenseful adventure film about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps. Set in 1936, as Nazi propaganda urges the nation’s Alpinists to conquer the unclimbed north face of the Swiss massif — the Eiger — two reluctant German climbers begin their daring ascent. With NORTH FACE, director and scriptwriter Philipp Stölzl—a multi-talented and sought after opera, music video, commercial and feature-film director—has succeeded in redefining pre-WW II German Berg (mountain) Film and transposing it to the 21st century.
