Sustainability

Our film works are committed to sustainable development: We are active both locally in Germany and internationally. Our projects have taken us to Guam, Madagascar, the Cook Islands and the Canary Islands. Always with the aim of promoting the idea of sustainability and a future worth living.

Vanilla Production and Diversity

2017-19: Film series about vanilla production and vertical integration in Madagascar (produced for the International Office of the University of Göttingen)

The price of vanilla has exploded within 10 years: But what are the consequences for the rural population of the Madagascan Sava region? So far, about 80% of the population is dependent on vanilla production. Also: What does this development mean for vital aspects of biodiversity? And what could be the consequences of the prevailing trend towards vertical integration in the vanilla sector?

 

We accompanied a team of researchers from the University of Göttingen. Together with the local population and the scientists, we have produced a film series on this topic.


In Production: Film Series about the Sustainable Development Goals

6 Dialogue-And-Discussion-films for the target groups 14-16 and 18-23 years of age 

 

On behalf of the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) and the University of Göttingen, we are currently producing a series of 6 Dialogue-And-Discussion-films that will introduce young people to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the ideas of sustainable research. Our core questions:

 

How can the world's soy problem be solved? How can chicken production be sustainable?

How can we make fish farming more efficient and sustainable and thus solve the problem of overfishing?

Where do our tomatoes actually come from? Can production become more regional?

 

Mathilda (13) and Johann (22) lead through the films and convey the Sustainable Development Goals in an understandable and exciting way.

What is our notion of Sustainability?

As studied anthropologists and sociologists we know that sustainability can only be thought of in a holistic way: Our films cover the various areas of sustainability as complementary units of ecological, social and economic facets.
