Documentaries "Wanted Eagle Owl" and "Leo 80. The History of a Leopard" will take part in prestigious festivals in Germany, Estonia and Kyrgyzstan.
The films of the channel "Living Planet" have entered the contest program of the best eco-festivals of the world, such as Green Screen, Matsalu Nature Film Festival and MNOG. All the film forums are devoted to the problems of ecology and biological diversity, and the documentary works presented in the contest program always touch on important issues of environmental protection and conservation of natural resources.
"We are pleased that the films about the Russian nature, which we are so proud of, liked the international audience. Nature speaks to everyone in one language. We hope to see the projects of our channel in the final of the contest program, "says Maria Morgun, editor-in-chief of the Living Planet TV channel.
Premiere of the film "Leo80. The story of one leopard "was held on the TV channel in 2016 and caused a real sensation. The real story of saving a wounded animal has affected the hearts of millions of viewers. In the film, the story is from the first person, that is, the viewer sees everything happening as if by the eyes of a leopard. From the moment of getting into the trap to the exciting interchange - will it be possible for the rare wild cat to return to nature or have to stay among people. To realize the director’s plan, the crew had to climb trees, step on logs, jump streams and use additional devices like leopard gloves. As a result, the "history of a leopard", which happened in the Far Eastern reserve, turned into a real television drama.
In September last year on the "Living Planet" TV channel a screening of the documentary "Wanted an Eagle Owl" was held. It is practically impossible to find a nest of a fish eagle in the Ussuri taiga. To see and take off his chicks seemed an impossible mission. Not even the best ornithologists of the country could guarantee success to the filmmakers, and the shooting process complicated the difficult climatic conditions - the fish eagle owl and breed in February in a 40-degree frost. As a result, the viewer sees both the search for a bird and the terrible story of a photographer who has embarked on this adventure.
The results of the competition program of the festivals can be found out very soon. The MUNG Film Forum will take place from 3 to 6 September, the Green Screen Festival from 12 to 16 September and the Matsalu Nature Film Festival from 19 to 23 September.
