The premiere of the 17-minute film Paradice with the professional pinists Nicolas Hojac, Jonas Schild and Stephan Siegrist will take place at the Rex cinema in Thun on January 2020, 20.

In winter, the Bernese Alps transform into a paradise for top alpine sport. Huge waterfalls freeze to ice and leave unique formations. Paradice shows three of the most beautiful Swiss ice climbing tours from an unusual perspective. A film about risk, responsibility and the beauty of nature.

“We're really excited to be launching the film we've been working on for the past three years. Paradice shows the beauty of frozen waterfalls as well as the great potential that we have here in Switzerland for ice climbing. "
