Wild Balkans

2008 - 2009 | HD | 16:9 | 51min | 5.1 & stereo | German | English

The Balkans - the very name rings with centuries of almost uninterrupted warfare - from the days of the Crusades and the Ottoman Empire, to more recent times and more recent conflicts. The Balkans are perhaps the least known part of Europe, and in a strange paradox that may well have been its saviour. The Balkans have some of the most pristine habitats that remain in Europe today. And where there is untouched habitat, the wildlife still survives. The WILD BALKANS takes us on an amazing journey into landscapes that seem more a part of the Middle Earth of "Lord of the Rings" than a region of Europe in the 21st Century. 

This film looks at the place, the landscape and the living creatures that have lived their lives unchanged for centuries. And now that the wars have ceased, there is great hope that these last wilderness areas of Europe will continue to survive with little disturbance, and the fragile balance of nature will remain unchanged. As well as observing the environment, WILD BALKANS is a film of great hope for the future of one of Europe's least disturbed regions.
