Sahara - The English Patient's Desert

Sahara - Das versunkene Paradies

Even today, the Sahara is full of miracles. Until way into the 20th century, vast areas remained unexplored. In the early thirties, the Austrian-Hungarian adventurer Ladislaus E. Almásy who later gained world-wide fame as the historical figure on whom the Hollywood movie «The English Patient» was based on, had undertaken several expeditions to various blank spots on the Sahara's map. Highly awarded film-maker Michael Schlamberger has followed Almásy's tracks to reveal the most amazing chapter of the world's biggest desert. The desert explorer had stumbled upon one of the trickiest riddles of climate history. The world's largest desert must once have been a lush Garden of Eden - a daring thought that raised great controversy with Almásy's peers. Following his footsteps, Schlamberger searched for evidence from the most thrilling chapter in the Sahara's natural history.
