Abstract
Der Film zeigt die Unterdruckkammer zur Simulierung von Höhentrainingsbedingungen in der ehemaligen DDR.
"Low-Pressure" was shot in an athletic training facility in the former German Democratic Republic that was built in the late 1970s to simulate the effects of high altitudes. Since the natural topology of the GDR didn't provide the appropriate altitudes this training facility was the only chance for GDR top athletes to get the performance enhancing effects of high altitude training, without having to travel outside Eastern Europe. A top secret facility at the time, the site was abandoned after the peaceful revolution of 1989 that ultimately led to the unification of Germany. The fate of the site was the result of a double economic incompatibility: it was too expensive to be kept in use, and too expensive to be dismantled.
