Synopsis
The theatrical documentary PASSION FOR PLANET extends the classic wildlife genre. It 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. With boundless passion and commitment they devote themselves to their deepest love: The natural beauty of Mother Earth. On occasion even risking their lives for it!
However, their mission is now in jeopardy! When returning to the same places they can't help but realize the alarming changes: The destruction and decline of our natural resources caused by the impact of man! Will they be able to save their love?
In PASSION FOR PLANET we follow five of them during their stirring and fascinating transformation from innocent nature lovers to resolute fighters. We are with them in their personal quest for answers. Those answers are astonishing – and motivating as well!
We are reminded that we are embedded in something bigger than our own lives. Being confronted with the fact that we have now reached our limits, we face an urgent call to mature! On their journey, our protagonists - as our representatives - are growing from innocent childlike unconcern into realizing our interdependency: For the future of our children! Thus overcoming our selfishness and devoting ourselves to the good of the greater whole...
The movie will infect the audience: With new passion for life and our own liveliness. And with a new perspective of Mother Nature and our place with her.
PASSION FOR PLANET takes us on a journey around the world: To more than 10 countries on 4 continents. The film will be screened at film festivals around the globe, in theaters near you, and be broadcasted as well.
Look forward with us to this exciting production!
