Monti Tatra, La vita al limite
Germany / 2017 / 50'
The Tatra Mountains, the smallest high mountain range on earth, loom far above the clouds. Some species have thrived here since the ice age: chamois are well equipped for the harsh climate. Marmots, meanwhile, spend more than half the year asleep. Red deer and bears repopulated the region after the end of the ice age. Since then, they have all tried to master the various challenges of this mountainous world.
