“Onekotan – The Lost Island” (Austria, 2015, Simon Thuss, 52’)

International Premiere - Unique and breathtaking, the kuril island “Onekotan” part of the pacific fire ring, somewhere between Kamchatka and Hokkaido. Uninhabitated, set in the middle of some of the stormiest and coldest seas in the world. At the same time, one of the most beautiful places, a perfect circled caldera lake which is having a vulcano in the center. An island in the island. So fascinating for Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr that they decided in 2014 to gothere for skiing, no matter what it takes to realize this dream. The beauty of the island was the sole reason, the fact, that nobody lives there, nobody has been there with skis, and it ́s almost impossible to reach in winter, was just a side effect, accepted by them, but never seen as special challenge or problem.Within one year of planning, they more and more understood why nobody ever goes there.
