IX Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck 1964
Directed by Theo Hörmann • 1964 • Austria
Joy and good humor pervades Theo Hörmann's documentary record of the 1964 Games in Austria. Shot in Agfacolor, it nurtures a folkloric image of Tyrol, with its quaint mountain farms and obligatory yodeling. Hörmann deploys shots from a helicopter to present the landscape of Tyrol but also to show the skills of the athletes.
