The Karst

Life between Heaven and Hell


A bleak landscape of rough beauty. For a long time, the Karst was the most inhospitable piece of ground between Trieste and Vienna. Its underworld, with its wild rivers racing through giant cave domes, shaped Dante's view of hell.

The film focuses on people and nature amidst water, wind and stone – salt workers and winegrowers, clever fishermen and strong women in the Mediterranean heart of Europe.
