Where the Ancient Beech Forests are almost untouched by human hands, the Jasmund National Park is home to a unique piece of unspoiled nature. It is of such outstanding importance that UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site on 25 June 2011.
This joyful occasion led to an extraordinary collaboration with one of the most prominent nature filmmakers in German television - Dirk Steffens - which resulted in a short documentary film of high quality in terms of content and visuals about the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Ancient beech forests and primeval beech forests of the Carpathians and other regions of Europe".
In order to present the history of the Ancient Beech Forests in an impressive way, Steffens' film team did not spare elaborate filming techniques such as macro shots, time-lapse, special effects and thus created impressive pictures from extraordinarily exciting perspectives. A special challenge was to create an emotionally appealing nature film that is perfectly designed for our unique round cinema architecture and that inspires the audience visually and acoustically on four screens.
We and more than one million visitors since the film's release in 2013 believe that this has been impressively realized.
