Almtal: Magical Valley

Magické údolí Almtal

The Almtal, the valley of the river Alm, is one of the most densely wooded regions. The film shows forest operations, and the work of scientists: a limnologist dives in the Alm-Sea, a biologist does research on ravens, and a geologist wants to know more about a gigantic rockslide. All this is held together by the valley´s storyteller. He knows the old local fairy tales which reflect the realation between nature and man.
