“Madagaskar - Zwischen Magie und Wirklichkeit”

Annette Scheurich, Dr. Rosi Koch (Deutschland) - 45 min

Under the tropical sun, 400 kilometres from the African continent, is a small continent of its own: Madagascar. Fantastic landscapes, bizarre flora and fauna and a people with a deep love of nature make this island so special. There are many reports about the over-exploitation of the nature in Madagascar, but this film focuses on another aspect. The Madagascans themselves do a lot in order to preserve the treasures of this micro-continent. They show us their stunning country from their point of view, and give us emotional insights into their cultural and spiritual world. Their commitment for the animals and the forest together with their joy of life, dance and songs, form the basis for an extraordinary excursion into the wonderful world of Madagascar – between magic and reality.
