With the end of the last ice age around 15,000 years ago, the seasons returned to Europe. The persistent winter did not last any longer. Spring, summer and autumn reoccured and extensive forests spread over the continent – inhabiting lots of different animal and plant species. “Seasons” shows us with fascinating pictures, how nature is permanently changing under human influece. The beauty and harmony of the pristine wilderness, which is fading under the impact of humans, is brought to us from the perspective of fauna and flora. Animals and Plants need to adapt to the ever changing conditions, native species as wild horses, wolfs and bears are suppressed, but nature always finds a way to spread in a new environment.
“Seasons” is a poetic chronicle of our environment an a anthem to the mysteries of nature. From the fox den deep in the forest to the ever-growing settlements of men, Seasons shows us the magic as well as the striking diversity of life and raises hope for a peaceful coexistence of all beings on this planet.
After “Oceans” and “Winged Migration”, Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzard make an expedition through Europe and millenia. Unique and impressing pictures of our continent and its inhabitants have been produced, which fascinate the spectators and will not let the stunning beauty be forgotten easily.
