It seems very likely that then the illegal treasure hunting will increase dramatically and historically valuable finds could be lost forever.

‘Treasure Hunting’, 30 minutes

Report on animals for slaughter completed

On many transports of animals across Europe violations of the ‘Protection of Animals Act’ are constant companions. The organization ‘Animals Angels’ are fighting for the improvement of the often painful conditions. Several weeks we accompanied some ‘Animals Angels' activists: On the motorways in Spain and France, on markets and farms in Eastern Europe and in their headquarter in Frankfurt / Germany. The film delivers insight in the very personal experiences of the employees to understand the motivation for their commitment. The result is an half-hour documentary with portrait elements for the German broadcast station ‘Hessischer Rundfunk’.
