Synopsis
How do you measure the beauty of a landscape? How that of a whole country? How and to what purpose can subjective impressions be converted into objective, statistically comparable data? Marco Kugel’s multi-layered film ›Die Karte der Schönheit‹ negotiates these questions against the background of the accelerated energy transition and the necessary grid expansion that goes with it. The landscape planner and scientist Michael Roth is commissioned by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation to draw up a map of Germany that can be used to feed the previously unconsidered factor of landscape beauty into future planning processes. The film impressively illustrates the complexity of the situation and conflicts of interest through a large number of cleverly chosen protagonists and project plans. The film describes how aesthetic landscapes become political and asks us viewers to question our own assessment of landscape. (19 dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg, bs)
