Nature Sapiens @ JenaTV Humans and Nature in the 21st Century

The cellu l’art Short Film Festival cannot happen in its initially planned form on the 21-26 April this year and is now postponed. We would like to show you two short film programmes on local JenaTV as a small consolation. One of them - “Nature Sapiens”.

Every person interacts with nature in their own way. We shape landscapes and we adjust it to our lifestyle. However, how does the environment change under our influence and how does it change us as well?

On the 21st of April at 9 pm we will show you the special programme “Nature Sapiens”. Six films from Argentina, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia illustrate the different aspects of cohabitation between humans and nature in the 21st century: water-saving, dystopian agriculture and forestry, problems of animal keeping, mining in a desert and an enchanting forest landscape.

Four of the films are without dialogues, two more will be shown in their original language with English subtitles. The programme will be shown on JenaTV with simultaneous streaming on the internet on JenaTV.

Some of the films might not be suitable for an audience under 16.

We would be very grateful for your help in financing the screening. If you would like to donate donate, please click the button below.
