The Maloja Snake

The Maloja Snake

We were recently contacted by Society member, Tim Oxton, who told us about a film he saw entitled “Clouds of Sils Maria”. The film focuses on a playwright who has written a play called “The Maloja Snake”, a cloud bank that winds its way through the Alpine pass like a river. It’s not often that a film is named after a cloud phenomenon which was previously filmed in 1924 by the famous German mountain film director, Arnold Fanck.

Below is a clip of the cloud from the new film along with the 1924 film.

    Am just reading Gavin’s book and just joined CAS. I thought of this film too.
