documentary
You might think you were in Ireland, you might sense the vastness of Castile in Spain, but youd never believe this was the heart of the Austrian Alps: The Nock Mountains are geologically Austrias oldest landscape. For a hundred million years, the land around them has risen and fallen, while the mountains themselves hardly moved. And for the past thousand years, the same has been true of the harmonious co-existence of wild nature and rural culture. Wreathed in gentle clouds circling the smooth green mountain tops, there is a serenity to this region that makes it easy to believe youre not far from heavens door.

Ships of the Desert
2012 documentary
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. Domesticated as beasts of burden they laid the foundations of ancient long-distance trade, with salt and incense caravans regularly crossing the most hostile landscapes in the world. Today, camels are still the most important source of milk, meat, leather, wool, fertilizer and fuel in large parts of Africa and Asia, and for the Bedouins of Arabia. Unsurprisingly Bedouins call the camel Al-Ata Allah, the gift of God. Now medical researchers are exploring the miraculous properties of camels milk apparently effective against Alzheimers and cancer! The film shows camels defying the deadly conditions of the desert with their Bedouin owners; valuable decorated fighting camels, cosseted and pitched against one another in Turkey; Saudi Arabias unique hi-tech camel clinics; and feral camels in Australia, saved from the cull and coralled for re-expor

Forest of Fantasies
2012 documentary
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.
