Alpinist Caro North is driven to the mountains, to rock walls, to great heights, in every part of the world. At the early age of 16, she had already been to Argentina to summit Aconcagua (6,961 m). In addition to her expeditions in Patagonia, Alaska, Iran and the Himalayas, her experience as a mountain guide in her native Swiss Alps has also shaped the young alpinist. In this portrait, we follow her to the icy heights of Switzerland, where Caro feels most at home.

Jochen Schmoll

Jochen Schmoll took the first steps into cinematography in 1993 and was immediately intrigued by the world of filmmaking. His professional career began in Stuttgart, Germany, where he started working as a cameraman and later as a freelance-producer for German broadcast stations and production companies. In 1996, he finished his first documentary, a portrait of mountaineer and alpinist Robert Jasper. In 1999, Jochen Schmoll moved to southern France and worked for one year with director Charles de Lartigue, producing a series of documentaries for Japanese and French television. The year 2000 marked the move to Mexico City and the beginning of a three-year period in which Jochen Schmoll focussed on producing, shooting and editing documentary films. Together, with his wife and two children, Jochen Schmoll has been living in Barcelona, Spain since 2006. As a Director and Director of Photography he continues working on commercials and documentaries.
