“Florian’s Last Climb” (completed)
Feb 2019 08

In 1909 the Austrian mountaineer Florian Frederick Graf von Liechtenstein left his estate near Innsbruck and travelled to Corsica for a climbing expedition. He was never seen again. Ninety years later his grandson Otto employs two film makers to help him uncover the mystery of the disappearance, but the facts get in the way of the truth.
