The main theme of Trenker's work was the idealization of peoples connection with their homeland and pointing out the decadence of city life (most clearly visible in his 1934 film "Der verlorene Sohn" / "The Prodigal Son").
Trenker was born Alois Franz Trenker on 4 October 1892 in Urtijëi (German: St. Ulrich in Gröden), then part of the County of Tyrol in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Trenker studied architecture from 1912 until the outbreak of World War I. He fought on the Austrian side, serving mainly in the Alps opposite the Italian Alpinis. He wrote several books based upon his war experiences, the most important of which were "Fort Rocca Alta" and "Berge in Flammen", the latter of which was made to a movie in 1931.
The Holy Mountain (German: Der heilige Berg) is a 1926 Weimar Republic mountain film directed by Arnold Fanck, starring LUIS TRENKER and future propaganda filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl in her first screen appearance as an actress.
