THE GIANT CAVE
AT THE MOVIES AND ON ARTE

The Riesending Cave ('Giant Cave') is by far Germany's deepest and longest shaft cave. The rocky tunnels wind their way down for almost 25 km into the legendary Untersberg Mountain with a drop of 1200 meters, through spectacular underground landscapes evoking images from The Lord of the Rings or the stories by Jules Verne. Five highly skilled speleologists take us on a first and exclusive journey into one of the world’s most challenging caves as they search for its ending.

Released in cinemas on 1st July 2021, the movie first aired on television on 22nd January 2022 and is now available on DVD and for streaming on ARTE.
Honoured with the „Audience Award“ at the Tegernsee Mountain Film Festival.

THE ARCTIC

The last two years of travel restrictions due to Corona put a halt to the new colourFIELD project. In 2022 we can finally start our journey around the arctic ocean, where climate change is palpable like nowhere else on the planet.
Spectacular aerial photography, sat-images and highly educational cgi-animations show the arctic’s incredible beauty, the endangered wildlife, the complexity of climate change and the countries’ run for the riches under the melting ice.
On television early 2023, on ZDF Terra X and on ARTE.
