Fish Wars
2010 nature-wildlife
The seas of the Asia Pacific stand as one of the last major centres of marine biodiversity in the world. But the vast carbon footprint left in the ocean has led global fisheries experts to demand drastic action. If that doesnt happen, they warn, all that that will be left in our oceans will be jellyfish. Meanwhile, a war is being waged. Illegal fishing has robbed Indonesia of an estimated $3.2bn in losses from poaching. Corrupt military forces do little to combat the trawlers, taking bribes and selling fake licenses to foreign poachers. Indonesia's coral reefs help to support one of the largest marine fisheries in the world, generating 3.6bn tons of fish each year. At stake here is not just the livelihood of a region, but also the future of one of the worlds greatest marine areas. We follow marine biologists from the WWF fighting to not just to protect, but to rebuild the oceans. This is a war for fish, for nature, and for the planet.

Operation Deep Sea: Shedding Light in the Darkness
2008 nature-wildlife
Deep sea: 1000m below the surface no light, immense pressure and icy temperatures. The deep sea encompasses more than 90% of the planets habitat. Yet we know less about these depths than about the moon. This film documents the technical, scientific, and ecological challenges of deep sea researchers. Scientists work worldwide together to collect data on the physical state of the upper ocean. With more than 3000 autonomous floats they monitor the oceans for influences on weather systems like El Nino or the monsoon. Does it affect global climate change? Does the deep sea offer solutions for the CO2 issue? Researchers in the Okinawa Trough are trying to find out. The sea floor harbors enormous amounts of resources: oil, natural gas, methane. Scientists work hard to try and locate these materials. Millions of deep sea dwellers are waiting for their discovery. The Census of Marine Life is trying to catalogue these bizarre ocean creatures before they disappear. The expenditures comeing with these projects are enorm

Golfing With Animals
2010 nature-wildlife
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

Return Of The Buffalo - Restoring The Great American Prairie
2010 nature-wildlife
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.

Sea Of Death
2011 history
Sea of Death is the ultimate documentary film about a catastrophe many times greater than Titanic: the sinking of three German refugee ships at the end of World War II when 20 000 people lost their lives. It combines unique under water footage from the divers who discovered the Steuben in 2005, interviews with survivors who have kept their trauma a secret for sixty years and access to secret sources in Russia that case new light on the tragic event. Towards the end of the Second World War millions of German civilians fled from the onslaught of the Soviet Army. Women, children, hospitalized soldiers together they crammed the Polish ports, their last chance of being evacuated. The situation was chaotic, the ships were loaded way over capacity. Off the coast, Soviet submarines were lying in wait, ready to attack any ship that ventured out into the Baltic Sea. The under water footage of the three wrecks Wilhelm Gustloff, Steuben and Goya is starkingly graphic: personal belongings left in panic sixty years ago

Plastic: The Real Sea Monster
2012 science
Plastic floats. This is where our story begins. Millions of tons enter the ocean every year, pouring out from rivers and shores, ships and platforms. The worlds scientists have studied the phenomenon and come to alarming results. Plastic contains synthetic hormones that are released when plastic breaks down into tiny particles through wind, waves and exposure to the sun. Once in seawater, plastic absorbs toxic substances known as POPs, or persistent organic pollutants. This process allows toxins to accumulate in a density a million times higher than normal. What happens when fish and seabirds mistake the plastic for food? Scientists have found evidence that these toxins are entering the food chain, and ultimately winding up in our bodies. Worse still, plastic doesnt biodegrade. Instead, it becomes trapped in massive maelstroms of garbage. Scientists have identified five of these so-called gyres. A few of them are larger than Spain and Portugal combined. The worlds biggest dumps are at sea. This is what we kno
