“Namaqualand - der Blumengarten Afrikas”
Nature and Environment (), Lynne und Philip Richardson 51 min
Billions of flowers vie for attention with flamboyant colours and spectacular shapes, attracting insects, mammals and birds alike. Every year a barren stretch of land on South Africa’s west coast turns into the largest natural flower show on the planet. But the miracle only lasts a few precious weeks. Meerkats, ostriches, even the Nama people struggle to survive as Namaqualand shows its true nature. Some flee, others retreat underground into burrows or bulbs, and some fall into the deep sleep of dormancy, only re-awakening to the soft touch of winter rain. This film chronicles the magical transformation of a landscape: from fantasy fields of flowers to the drama of the desert, and back again.
