Global Warning

Every year new relics from the First World War are brought to the surface due to the melting of North-Italy’s glaciers. Among them, not only live ammunition and fire weapons, but also the bodies of fallen soldiers, which were preserved in the ice. Ernst Gossner ’ s documentary GLOABAL WARNING detects connections between global warming and the economic motivations of warfare. Since the military conflicts of WW1 global disputes seem to increase, as is the global temperature.
