Up Close. HONEST. DEEPLY TOUCHING.
FIVE ADVENTURES. ONE GOAL.
PASSION FOR PLANET takes us on an adventure around the globe. In front of the most spectacular natural backdrops and wildlife observations we dive into the universe of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers. Facing the pain of the destruction of the natural world, they now have to ask themselves:
Can We Save Our Love?
for "PASSION FOR PLANET"
Showing what really moves us.
These 45-minute portraits where we get close to people in their deepest passions and what drives them in life.
A NATURE ENTHUSIAST SHOWERED WITH AWARDS.
Bavarian Jan Haft is Germany’s showcase animal filmmaker in the world. His secret of success is to elicit something completely new, something not yet seen, from the supposedly familiar, and to condense this into masterful stories. His main focus is on his German homeland. Because he finds: “Our local nature is just as exciting as the faraway exotic.”
A WOMAN PREVAILS.
Indian wildlife filmmaker Rita Banerji whirls in a tour de force crisscrossing her vast homeland. She fights for biodiversity and against poaching. Seeing herself as a mediator in the frequent human-animal conflicts, she knows that good solutions can only be found together with the local people. On her journey, she experiences dangerous animal encounters and touching births of countless sea turtles. And she reaches out to connect with former hunters and poachers.
AN ECO-ACTIVIST OF THE FIRST HOUR.
Mark Shelley is a wildlife filmmaker, marine biologist, environmental activist and eco-rebel. In his native California, he now wants to create more awareness for the highly endangered sea otter. For years, Mark has been fighting for a change in consciousness when it comes to dealing with our resources. As the father of a daughter, he sees it as his duty to leave behind a world worth living in. He also wants to help the often romanticized animal film genre to become more real.
