Magie der Moore

Like hardly any other habitat, the moor contains countless stories: Its attraction and dark myths make us shiver, the splendour of its biodiversity astonish us.

In "The Magic of the Moors", the renowned nature film maker Jan Haft ("The Green Planet") directs the eye to one of our most important and beautiful biotopes. Changing with the times of day and the seasons, the film shows a place at the transition between water and earth, full of exciting contrasts.

In addition to wolves roaming through white cottongrass tufts, cranes feeding their young in the woods or gracefully dancing adders, we experience carnivorous sundews and delicate moss plants whose spores explode with a cracking sound. A filigree work of art created by nature over thousands of years, which we are only gradually beginning to explore, understand - and preserve.
