Greece - Garden of the Gods
Griechenland - Der Garten der Götter
Greece, the Ancient Empire, is the residence of the Gods from Artemis to Zeus. A sanctuary of impressive temples, ruins, mystical places of worship and home to a rich fauna and flora. Steeped in legends, this countryside provides the backdrop for the unique natural history of the birthplace of the Olympic Games. This unconventional documentary moves to and from between the world of ideas and natural facts and takes us through the realm of the Gods where hardly known animals live in a breathtaking landscape. Schlamberger combines the magnificent visual imagery of nature-film with a journey into the world of ancient Greek ideology, inviting us on an entertaining stroll through the «Garden of the Gods».
