Eye-to-Eye introduction by Caroline Fetscher, publicist, Berlin

In post-war West-Germany Professor Bernhard Grzimek, zoologist, zoo director, filmmaker and author, shaped the perception of Africa like nobody else. No Place for Wild Animals was awarded the Golden Bear for best documentary film at the 1956 Berlinale. Today, this film is recommended especially to audiences interested in the origins of the German eco-movement as it provides critical review of its contemporary self-awareness. What has changed since the post-war-period? Possibly not much more but the terminology? In which way is today’s climate discourse still stuck in the ideology of the 1950ies?
