Arnold Fanck, 1924

 

Das Wolkenphänomen in Maloja are so well-known that some of them have names, such as the Maloja snake, a cloud bank that winds its way through the Alpine pass like a river. Clouds pass overhead, Fanck films them, just sufficiently to get the idea, among the crags of the Engadine, and gradually he connotes the wider scene, peopling the solitude and stillness below with a person or two, boating.

Der Film widmet sich dem Naturschauspiel der Wolkenbewegungen hoch über den Gipfeln der Engadiner Bergwelt. In ausgedehnten Fotostudien zeigt der Film vor allem die ungewöhnlichen Wolkenformationen rund um den Engadiner Malojapass, die durch besondere Luftausgleichsströmungen entstehen. Feuchte Luft verwandelt sich in Wolken und wird wie in einem Wasserfall über den Malojapass gedrückt (siehe auch Maloja-Schlange), während darüber die Sonne scheint. Der Nordwind treibt die höher gelegenen Wolken gegenläufig wieder nach Süden. Nach und nach wird die Stille und Einsamkeit der Szenerie mit Aufnahmen von zwei Bootsfahrern konnotiert, die im Angesicht der imposanten Bergwelt auf einem See fahren.

Nietzsche résida à Sills Maria:

This is from the 'Nietzsche Haus' web site:

"At the beginning of July 1881, Friedrich Nietzsche visited Sils for the first time, staying at the home of the Durisch family (today's Nietzsche Haus), where he rented a room on the first floor. From 1883 to 1888, he returned here every summer. He had found a place that gave him peace and enabled him to concentrate, a landscape which - as he said himself - was "blutsverwandt" (related by blood). Here, he worked on a number of books during his 7 summer stays (1881, 1883-88), e.g. Part 2 of "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", whose key idea of eternal recurrence came to him in a moment of inspiration on the shore of the Lake of Silvaplana."

In 'Ecce Homo,' Nietzsche wrote:

"... "this highest formula of affirmation that is at all attainable, belongs in August 1881: it was penned on a sheet with the notation underneath, '6000 feet beyond man and time.' That day I was walking through the woods along the lake of Silvaplana; at a powerful pyramidal rock not far from Surlei I stopped. It was then that this idea came to me."
