A film by Annette and Klaus Scheurich
Documentary (43 min), ZDF/Arte/, 2010
Breathtaking scenery, centuries-old traditions and a wealth of fauna – Germany’s highest low mountain range has much more to offer than just traditional bobbled hats and cuckoo clocks. The Black Forest is a nature idyll in the heart of Europe. In a series of highly atmospheric images, the film portrays the richness of nature in the Black Forest. It illustrates how roe deer, stags, birds and other wildlife flourish in the lushness of early autumn, how they survive the harsh, snowy winter, and their joy at the awakening of spring. We experience a Black Forest in which nature plays a prominent role, and man has found ways to unite harmoniously the traditional with the modern in many areas.
