Deltas of the World
5 x 52' (ENG, GER), 5 x 45' (GER, FRE)
River deltas are impressive landscapes in a constant state of flux with unique biodiversity.
Due to their sensitive ecosystems, the impact of humankind has already irreversibly changed and will change some deltas. Each of the five films features a different continent, documents the flora and fauna in a river delta and discusses the role of mankind in the preservation of nature. They show the fascinating diversity of the deltas on our planet, from the arctic to the tropics, on the border between land and sea.
Often, river deltas are among a countries most fertile regions. Human communities have often adapted their own habits to match a delta’s natural rhythms even as they have radically changed some delta landscapes. But humans aren’t the only residents of these rich habitats.
Each of the five films will document the distinctive flora and fauna of a major delta, with an emphasis on the responsibility of humans towards nature. River deltas are fragile ecosystems. Many have been and are still being irreversibly altered by human activity. The series looks at how scientists and researchers are working to find ways to better support and utilize these special regions in order to ensure a future for the frail symbiosis between man and nature.
