World's Last Paradises

  • Published 8 months ago

This collection of short films takes the audience on an eye candy trip around the world. The flight around the globe begins with a visit to the ice bears in the Wapusk National Park in Northern Canada.
Empathetic footage of newborn ice bears is succeeded by images of turquoise-colored water cascades in the world famous Croatian National Park at the Plitvica Lakes.
In Ethiopia, the so-called bleeding heart monkeys, or Geladas, give us insights into their lives in the pack on the high plateaus of the Simien National Park. From her, it's off way down to the Earth's south and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
The 1500 species of fish, 350 stone coral and 80 soft coral types are all endangered by acute coral bleaching. Before long, these images may only exist on film.
Now, the viewer is taken from this colorful and gigantic, subterranean massif to the kingdom of the stone giants: in the Alps. The fascination of mountain sculptures continues at China's Li River. The stars here however are the cormorants that have been trained to fish for humans.
