Italy/Germany 2013



Sometimes at night she dreams about flying.

She dreams, that she is jumping and that things are happening, which could never happen...



Elena Runggaldier, 25,  is a member of the Italian national ski jumping team since ten years. With a second prize in Oslo in 2011 she won the very first Italian medal at a ski jumping world championship. In Sochi 2014 the ski jumping ladies participated at the Winter Olympics for the first time in history, 90 years later than the men.


In the short multimedia story »L'aquila azzurra« Elena speaks about fear, special qualities in ski jumping and ­above all about her sensations during the jump. Flying with nothing but skies ­– about four seconds for the viewers, sometimes eternal for her.
