Experiencing Interruptions?

Nature's Magic Moments

„Nature's Magic Moments“ lets us see nature with new eyes! Unique animal behavior, brilliant super slow motion and amazing time lapse allow us to immerse ourselves in an unknown world, where every moment is a feast for the senses.

Nature is full of surprises, but all too often they escape our perception. Amazing animal behavior often takes place in secret and happens so quickly that we can hardly see it. Christian Baumeister's film reveals what remains hidden from the human eye. State-of-the-art camera technology, impressive super slow motion and amazing time lapses magically stage kingfishers, brown hares, bats and co. in extraordinary moments. A feast for the senses and an unforgettable film experience for the whole family.
