The high mountains of the Alps are at risk as developers encroach ever further in the name of expanding ski resorts and their infrastructure—all amidst palpable climate disaster. Vanishing Lines speaks for our surviving alpine spaces of quiet and ice, and the people who are demanding we ask: What's a future without wild glaciers? And how many ski areas do we really need?
Well that was more thought provoking than I expected. The key question was (approximately) "who is actually benefitting the most from these massive expansion projects?" - it seems to not be the obvious answer of tourists.
Nice to see, at least once, a line being taken where the protagonist got to the start under their own steam, although one has to ask "why?" when a helicopter did some of the filming. Or perhaps it was a drone.
