ICEMAN

UK, 1992 (MIFF 1994, Science Programme)

Director: Katharne Everett

Prize-winning documentary on the discovery of the 5000 year-old remains of a hunter high in the Austrian-Italian Alps. His remarkably well-preserved corpse, clothing, tools and other possessions have posed a major archeological puzzle. The Iceman is overturning our views on Stone Age life and culture.
