Danube Delta, new perspectives
We usually recall from films stills that nourish our imagination and give us a new perspective towards the wolrd we live in. At Pelicam International Film Festival, Rewilding Europe and WWF-Romania are proposing a trip to Danube Delta in 40 shots, in order to bring the audience closer to the Delta and to encourage him to start his own expedition. The photographs made by Staffan Widstrand, Magnus Lundgren, Florian Möllers and Cristian Mititelu-Răileanu will guide you into the depths of Danube inhabited by sturgeons, on the surface of water filled with water lilies, in Letea forest with its old oaks, in the mundane life of the Delta, up in the skies, above the colonies of pelicans. These images tell the story of one of the areas where we initiate a new approach for preservation, in which people protect and live in harmony with the wild nature.
