Pottwal Ahoi!

Volker Barth (Deutschland) - 43 min

The documentary „Pottwal Ahoi“ is not the usual animal film. Thanks to the combination of scientific data research and a modern 3D animation, it has the very first time become possible to get an insight into the mysterious deep sea world of the pot whales. Never before have human eyes had the chance to see what a pot whale really experiences in a depth of more than 1,000 metres below sea level.

This particularly felicitous film reveals a balance of camera, direction, graphic, text and sound. Thus, the intention to protect an endangered animal species was implemented in a dramaturgically convincing way.
