Living under the stars

SHOT BYLou Goetzmann

DIRECTORLou Goetzmann



After a successful career in brain research, Vaclav and Jitka Ourednik chose to spend their life in the midst of Europe’s oldest national park to pursue their fascination of astronomy. In the remoteness of the beautiful swiss alps they continue to research our universe. I had to chance to spend a weekend in the Valley of Müstair and enjoyed wonderful insights on what their daily life is like.
