Filmmaker Erwin Wagenhofer doesn't make it that easy for himself. In his latest film BUT BEAUTIFUL he’s looking for the beautiful and the good in life and he finds people who break new ground. What could a good, a happy life look like? Is a 'different' life actually possible? The result is a film about new perspectives without fear, about connectedness in music, nature and society, and about people with different ideas sharing one big common goal: a sustainable world.
Women without formal school education who build solar panels for villages all over the world. Permaculture visionaries on La Palma who transform wastelands into a green paradise. A forester who develops and builds the healthiest houses in the world. A spiritual leader with a waggish sense of humour and essential messages. His Tibetan sister with a big heart for the youth. A young jazz trio, an established pianist and a soulful Colombian singer, who bestow upon us the sound of beauty.
