"Buy land, they're not making it anymore." - Mark Twain´s quote become of urgency.
The world’s farmland is at risk. Demand for land has soared as investors look for places to grow food for export, grow crops for biofuels or simply buy up land for profit. The film gives an inside look into the world of investors in the international agro-business and how the politics of the European Union is involved. Land Grabbing doesn´t only happen in Asia and Africa, but also in Europe´s breadbasket Romania. "LAND GRABBING" takes a closer look into Europe and also challenges investors and their practices.
Directed by author and Romy awarded journalist Kurt Langbein.
“This film documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space”.With unprecedented access to the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the military, and experts from leading space agencies, the film explores a first contact scenario, beginning with the simplest of questions: Why are you here? How do you think? What do you see in humans that we don’t see in ourselves? A journey beyond a terrestrial perspective, revealing the fears, hopes, and rituals of a species forced not only to confront alien life forms, but also its own self image.
The main characters are ‘humanized’ chimps, who after years in captivity must learn to live among their own species again. Many of them were taken from the wild at a very young age and never learned any practical or social skills as apes. A vulnerable, paradoxical process that raises fundamental ethical questions and reminds us of where we come from.
An archecholgist races against time to save a 2.000-year-old Buddhist archaeological site in Afghanistan threatened by a Chinese copper mine and Taliban attacks. Only 10% of Mes Aynak has been excavated and experts believe future discoveries have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and of Buddhism itself. A conflict between cultural preservation and economic opportunity.
