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.

Ships of the Desert
Camels are masters of the art of survival. They can go for up to ten months without a drop of water, then drink 200 litres in only 15 minutes, and even digest salt water.

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.
