Mountain Miracle


After her latest, life-threatening asthma attack lands headstrong thirteen-year-old Amelie in the hospital, the doctor advises her concerned parents to ship the swearing Berlin city-girl off to a clinic in Italy’s South Tyrol mountains. Not only does Amelie hate being sick, but she also hates mountains. After running away, she meets Bart, a local teenager who is as stubborn as she. When he tells her of the Alp Mountain Fires, an old tradition said to have healing powers, the teens embark on a journey of hope to the mountain peak—stunningly captured by cinematographer Martin Schlecht. Inspired by her own daughter’s experiences, Natja Brunckhorst (Christiane F.) penned an exciting tale of friendship, strength and first love that deals honestly with Amelie's struggles and illness. Mountain Miracle won the 2018 German Film Award for Outstanding Children or Youth Film as well as an Honorable Mention at the 2017 TIFF Kids International Film Festival.
