Abstract: The South Kamchatka Federal Sanctuary is often called a bear paradise. The film production team headed there and spent seven months observing and filming the hidden secrets of the newborn brown bear cubs’ daily lives throughout their first year on Earth. “Kamchatka Bears - Life Begins” is a film that differs from the other nature documentaries. The film is meditative. Music, the sounds of nature and the absence of a human voice allow the viewer to plunge into the beauty of wild nature, to feel its presence among volcanoes, rivers and wild animals, and experience an important boundary, beyond which a person should not interfere.

Abstract: Katmai’s extensive sedge meadows are like a lifeline for brown bears at a time when food is scarce for them. They attract Grizzlies in unusually high numbers, forcing them to congregate and tolerate each other in close proximity. It’s a challenge for these notorious loners... and an opportunity for bear researcher Chris Morgan. Able to observe them at close range, he witnesses bear society in full swing, from lonely youngsters getting to grips with life as adult brown bears, to anxious mothers trying to balance getting enough to eat with the security of their kids, boisterous youths ready to measure their fighting prowess, and love-sick males in hot pursuit of females ready to mate. Commentating with wit and in-depth knowledge, Chris explores the private lives of Katmai’s bears in unprecedented detail, and exposes different personalities, strategies and social bonds. It soon becomes clear how individual each bear is, and how adaptable they all are to the challenges posed by the unusual and surprising bear habitat on the Katmai coast. Above all, in order to succeed here, it’s essential to understand the rules of bear etiquette and social order - a skill that is passed on from mothers to cubs through the generations. Entertaining, informative and gripping, Chris Morgan takes us on a thrilling excursion into the world of Katmai’s brown bears.

Abstract: Uganda is still what travellers consider an ‘insider trip’. Off the tourist map, a place still in the shadows of its past. Visitors, including scientists and conservationists, had a difficult time in the civil war-stricken country. Poaching had endangered many of Uganda’s most iconic animals, including mountain gorillas, savannah elephants, the chimpanzees and even the tree-dwelling lions. But now the national parks have been restored and Uganda’s wildlife is once again thriving. This is a celebration of their survival.

Abstract: The illicit ivory trade is taking a toll far beyond the reaches of our imagination. When adult elephants are slaughtered by poachers for their tusks, young calves are by their side and witness the traumatizing events. Unable to survive without the care of a mother or herd, they are left to die in the wild. Their survival is dependent on the extraordinary people who dedicate their lives to protecting and raising them at an elephant orphanage tucked deep within Kafue National Park in the heart of Zambia. This film is an inside look into their lives and the struggles they face as they grow up as A HERD OF ORPHANS. Filmmaker Kelly Bakos captures the heartwarming, humorous and cheeky personalities of these orphans while interweaving stories about daily survival and coming of age within an unnatural setting—while threats still abound.

Abstract: Con una profondità senza precedenti, il film descrive una comunità buddhista zen che ha rinunciato a tutti i propri beni e si è votata a una vita di castità per uno scopo comune: trasformare la propria sofferenza e praticare l'arte della consapevolezza con l'aiuto del maestro famoso in tutto il mondo Thich Nhat Hanh. Questo documentario a tinte forti - le cui riprese a cavallo tra le strade degli Stati Uniti e un monastero nella campagna francese sono durate più di tre anni - è una riflessione su una comunità che si scontra con domande esistenziali e sulla routine quotidiana della vita monastica. Con il trascorrere delle stagioni, i monaci ricercano un rapporto sempre più profondo con se stessi, mentre il mondo circostante viene illustrato dai diari di Thich Nhat Hanh, attraverso la voce di Benedict Cumberbatch. Nel booklet: Testi di Elisabetta Beccaria, Stefano Bettera, Adriana Rocco e Carolina Traverso.

Abstract: As soon as the days get cold and dark insects begin to disappear from the meadows and fields. Their sum and hum slowly fades away and will finally be gone. All animals have their special ways to survive winter. Migrating birds like swallows and cranes fly towards south, a lot of mammals like deer get a thick winter fur or hide away and sleep where it’s warm. But what do insects do? And why are they all back in spring? This documentary shows how insects living directly in front of our doorstep get through the cold days. In extravagant nature shots the different and most fascinating strategies will be revealed. Ladybugs for example gather with hundreds at safe places and survive ice and snow thanks to some kind of antifreeze mixture in their blood. Hornets let their whole tribe die, but not without having themselves a last rush with fermented berries; only young queens hibernate in the ground and start a new tribe in spring. Bees by contrast collect nectar and pollen all summer long. They need it to make honey and thus heat their hive when it gets cold and feed the whole tribe. However, unnecessary eaters get killed before the cold comes. Many insects are capable of the most amazing things. Just like migrating birds some are able to fly for thousands of miles. The red admiral, a colorful butterfly for example, flies over 1.5 thousand miles high alpine passes to hibernate in warmer areas in the south of Europe. Other butterflies only start hatching when it starts to freeze and most insects have already died or disappeared. Their only aim is to pair and lay eggs. They die without even eating once. Due to high-class macro and close-up lenses, very fine camera work and slow-motion shots this documentary stands up with technically brilliant and high definition shots in 4K. They uncover an outstanding wonderland that usually stays unseen for human eyes and reveal unique and intimate moments from the secret life of the tiny crawling animals. There will be stag beetles with their enormous mandibles spending the winter lying on their back inside a cold pupated hollow deep underground; earwigs giving an impression of their outstanding and touching brood care. They live in breeding chambers under ground, which they defend and care for selflessly. There will be pictures, so unique as even scientists say they have never seen these special creatures like this before.

Abstract: The Scottish evolutionary biologist, John Haldane once said the creator must have „an inordinate fondness for beetles.“ Beetles are extremely rich in species and very successful, as they inhabit earth for more than 240 million years. There are around 380.000 kinds of beetles known to scientists and every year hundreds of species are discovered. One fourth of the world’s animals are beetles. They have conquered almost every corner and every habitat on the planet and they have survived every global disaster. What is it that makes them so successful? The cockchafer seems to be the prototype of the beetle. It owns a compact body; its abdomen and wispy hind wings lay under its robust front wings, where they are well armored. Bugs like the Cockchafer often seem clumsy, however their body happens to be hugely successful. Today we know from amber inclusions that many beetles have hardly changed for millions of years. In the course of their evolution, beetles have conquered almost every habitat. They even adapted to a life under water. The great diving beetle is a great swimmer and a famous water predator. However it needs to get to the surface to breathe. It uses its hard wings like a scuba tank and traps the air beneath its wing case. That makes it possible to dive for around half an hour. In contrast to many other insects, beetles were successful in using every available food source. Some are herbivores, others, are dangerous predators. Some beetle’s larvae eat wood, but they even live on dung and carrion. To keep their food safe, some beetles have evolved amazing ways of behavior: The Sisyphus Dung Beetle can form dung balls up to ten times its own weigh and maneuver them over rough and steep terrain. Burying Beetles can bury carcasses of mice and birds in a sort of crypt in the ground. The film looks at the most successful order of animals on the planet. Due to high-class macro and close-up lenses and slow-motion shots the documentary will give an insight into the world of domestic beetles. It will show fascinating behaviors, which usually stay hidden.

Abstract: The Tatra Mountains loom far above the clouds – the smallest high mountain range on earth. Some species have thrived here since the ice age: chamois are well equipped for the harsh climate. Marmots, meanwhile, spend more than half the year asleep. Red deer and bears repopulated the region after the end of the ice age. Since then, they’ve tried to master the various challenges of this mountainous world.

Abstract: Machli, the legendary Tiger Queen of Ranthambhore National Park, in Western India, was known for her fierce determination, bravery and confidence. She captured the imagination and hearts of tiger fans like no other. Machli died at the record age of twenty years but not before she had played a key role in the regeneration of tiger population in the Ranthambhore and Sariska National Parks. This film chronicles Machli’s journey from her prime to her death, over a period of nine years, telling the incredible stories behind Machli’s rise to power, her heartbreaking descent and the extraordinary legacy she left behind. Machli taught us a valuable lesson that protecting one tiger can create a forest.

Abstract: The Eurasian water shrew hunts in its mountain streams, black cocks court and the peregrine falcon nests in rock crevices. The Ore Mountain Range offer divers habitats between mud volcanos and cold air pockets. Many specialists survive here: the water bear, an eight-legged micro-animal, even frozen. In the Ore Mountains, genesis, growth and decay are determined by the power of water. It has ground rocks, carved caves and valleys. And it has created peat bogs – important niches for the aquatic diving bell spiders, or the moorland clouded yellow that can’t exist without bog bilberries.

Abstract: Vulcanism, on the one hand a cause for the biodiversity of the Caribbean, also means a great danger. On the islands of Dominica and Guadeloupe, this natural phenomenon has many faces: boiling lakes, toxic sulfur eruptions, bubbling flat underwater volcanoes like the famous Champagne Reef and, in thousands of meters, the black smokers in the deep sea. But precisely because the titanic forces from the earth's heart are so fast, they also open up new niches. In this way, an animal and plant world could emerge which is untypical for the Caribbean, both above and below water. Gigantic Leather back turtles – up to three meters in length - lay their eggs in the black volcano sand. On the steep mountain slopes of the volcanoes enormous frogs and insects, like the over 15 cm long rhino beetle, could develop during the course of the evolution. Almost every one of the deeply incised valleys is home to species of animals which exist only here. Because of these special conditions special behavioral forms could also arise. The sperm whales of Dominica eat smaller squid than elsewhere, dive much more often per day and live differently than their fellow-species in direct coastal proximity. But their population is shrinking seemingly unstoppable. If the development is not stopped, there will probably be no sperm whale in 2030. The same applies to the turtles and the giant frogs, which are still being hunted here. The documentation is not just a journey to these unique animals. The shooting also accompanies locals and scientists who try to stop the destructive developments.

Abstract: When spring arrives on Alaska’s Katmai coast, it’s time for brown bears to emerge from their winter slumber. But this is no ordinary bear habitat – this is bear paradise: an unusual combination of rich food sources draws more Grizzlies together on its lush sedge meadows, extensive mudflats and rushing rivers than anywhere else on Earth. It makes Katmai the perfect place for bear biologist Chris Morgan to experience Grizzly behaviour up close. Since brown bears are protected here, they are not shy around humans and approach to within a few metres. At the beginning of the bear-year, food is the main thing on the bears’ minds, from grazing on sedge grasses to digging for clams, scavenging on carcasses, even predating on young bear cubs … securing the next meal is an absolute priority until the salmon runs in late summer provide a welcome reprieve. Surrounded by wild Grizzlies of all ages and personalities, Chris grants us a rare glimpse into their daily lives, their triumphs and tribulations. His tongue-in-cheek approach remains informative throughout, explores the bears’ personas and demolishes the widespread notion of the aggressive and deadly beast. Engaging, exciting, funny and sad all wrapped into one, Chris Morgan brings us a step closer to the realities of life as a brown bear.
