When a Smile Remains

On September 12th, Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival Patron Heiner Geißler died at the age of 87.

“When a person still has a smile left at the end of their life, that’s a very decent net gain.” Not only his invariably apt, memorable words will be missed — Heiner Geißler leaves the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival with a void: as its patron, but primarily as a cherished individual and friend.
