Forest of Fantasies
Report a problem
On Christmas Eve, they say, the animalscan talk. Peter Rosegger, one of Austrias greatest writers, turned this legend into a magical short story about his own country childhood in Styrias Alpine uplands. Its one of Austrias most fascinating landscapes: deep, dark forests flanked by steep mountain ridges, gentle meadows reaching up to exposed summits: in limitless shades of just one color: green. Trudging through the snow to join his family for the Christmas Eve service in the valley below, ten-year-old Peter comes face to face with a young fawn in the twilight, and wonders what he could tell about growing up in the forest, with the other animals, through the seasons. This film captures the essence of Roseggers story and the subtle and dramatic changes of the Styrian forest throughout the year.

Return Of The Buffalo - Restoring The Great American Prairie
The vast area of the American prairie tells the story of an experiment that has been going for 150 years: the settlement of the American Midwest. Countless ghost towns define the appearance of deserted swathes of land. The radical vision of a scientist couple from New York sparked a new debate about the economic recovery of the region. Their plan is to make the Great Plains a public property, a common area, and reverse it to its original condition. Project Buffalo Commons is the attempt to turn back the demographics and history of the American west to the time before the settlement. Fences should be torn down to allow hundreds of thousands of buffalos to roam freely across the vast plains. The intended goal is that an expected rise in tourism and a highly efficient buffalo meat production will provide people of this region with security and a new future.
Golfing With Animals
Golfing with Animals is a film about a paradox! The paradox is, that there actually are wild animals and plants in manmade environments, close to humans. The habitat may seem tame but the law of the jungle is always in use amongst those animals that live there. The survival of the fittest is obvious for those creatures that live in an apparently safe and tame environment. Is a golf course a wildlife environment? We are turning the expression wildlife upside down. The purpose is to show an artificial environment as wildlife. Golfing with Animals show the habitants and guests (except humans) you can meet in a man made habitat and that it can be very rich of species. In the film we meet conflicts in a no-mans-land but also that humans and wild animals can coexist in peace. We have chosen to use a golf course as an example. An environment that is wilder than expected! Golfing with Animals is told from an entertaining and humoristic angle. Through the view of the animals looking at the game of golf and its partici
