Nature and Environment
As night falls, an ethereal mist creeps over an primeval forest. The howl of a wolf echoes across the mountains, followed by another and yet another wolf. Down in the valley, a wisent turns swiftly, a deer runs off a little and a beaver swims into its hiding place. Only a bear waits in anticipation of sponging off the prey of the wolf. This is the story of one of the last wildernesses in Europe, where each creature plays its role in the eternal cycle of life and death. For three years, the filmmakers trekked the length and breadth of the mountains and forests of Eastern Carpathians. They were searching for elusive wolves and other extraordinary animals, which share this territory – and discovered a world almost untouched by people.
