The forest is a place which seems familiar, however, some of its secrets still remain undisclosed. The forest is at the same time a paradise for animals as well as a hostile realm of shadows. Meanwhile we slowly realize: a true natural wood needs counterparts which provide light and warmth in its inner spaces. Only then, the forest will become a green universe with an exuberant richness of plants and animals and a world full of great and small miracles.

The numerous documentaries which intend to give us an understanding of the world mostly reveal the same hand-writing. One is longing for a new dramaturgy. The film “Der Mythos Wald” shows us a possible direction of such a new way. The simplicity and the clarity of this new film rhythm make this film so excellent.
