A tiny virus with an enormous impact on us all, Covid-19 forces us to pause for a moment. At the same time this standstill opens up new possibilities, giving us room to look at our lives from another perspective and to question the things we take for granted.

It is here that the short film ECHO, by director Noël Dernesch begins. In the middle of the Covid-19 lockdown Noël visits two mountaineers and holds a philosophical dialogue with them about their new day to day life and their personal views of the crisis in picturesque Grindelwald.
