Living Heritage

Living Heritage” focuses on peoples whose cultures are threatened. It was developed in cooperation with the "Länder-Menschen-Abenteuer"-department of German TV-station SWR, ARTE and the UNESCO. Peoples originating from very different cultures with their completely unique traditions provide a perfect basis for a series of documentary films. Myths passed on by oral tradition are just as endangered as ancient medical and natural knowledge. In these cultures there are old people who understand the knowledge and potential of their cultures and who want to pass it on to the young generation. For the chief characters of the series there resulted inevitably a dramaturgically interesting contrast between teacher and pupil and respectively between young and old. The stories we tell are about the learned and the learners. Therefore the central theme of each film is the imparting of knowledge.
