Unfortunately the time when the territory of present-day Germany was covered with impenetrable forests is over. Today cultural landscapes, dense population and agriculture dominate. The remaining forests are mostly productive forests, intended for timber harvesting. But there are places, islands in the landscape, which look like proper forest.
That is what this short film is about, taken at the gates of Berlin and in the studio. It shows a selection of nature that is actually still there, to experience by everyone. Landscape photography alternates with timelapse photography, taken outdoor and in studio, show the growing and flowering of plants, melting snow or freezing the nature.
