Goethe Zentrum, in collaboration with the Birdwatchers’ Society Of Andhra Pradesh, is screening the documentary Seasonal Forests in the penultimate epsode of their ongoing Planet Earth series. The screening is on 27th August at 5pm.

Planet Earth is a BBC documentary that won several prizes. Narrated by David Attenborough and produced by Alastair Fothergill, it was first broadcasted in the UK in March 2006.

Seasonal Forests surveys the coniferous and deciduous seasonal woodland habitats - the most extensive forests on Earth. Conifers begin sparsely in the Arctic but soon dominate the land, and the taiga circles the globe, containing a third of all the Earth’s trees. Few creatures can survive the Arctic climate all year round, but moose and wolverine are exceptions.

The film goes 1,600 kms to the South, on the Pacific coast of North America, where conifers have reached their full potential. These include some of the world’s tallest trees - the redwoods - where the film shows a pine marten stalking a squirrel, and great grey owl chicks taking their first flight. Further South still, in the Valdivian forests of Chile, a population of smaller animals exists, including the pudu and the kodkod.

The film also shows spring in a European broad-leafed forest, summer on North America’s East coast, Russia’s Amur leopards in winter, a timelapse sequence that illustrates the effect of the ensuing spring on the deciduous forest floor, and even India’s teak forests.

The screening is open for all. Please contact 6552-6443 for further details.
