During NAPTE Explora Films will primiere worldwide its last production, “Tuaregs, The Warriors of the Dunes” (1 x 52’). This documentary will take us to one of the most hostile habitats of the planet: the grand Sahara desert, to meet the Touaregs, the feudal lords who dominate this immense territory. They are an untamed people, impossible to subjugate. Their strict rules, where honour and hospitality are among the main ones, determine the life of their different tribes. We will travel next to the Madugu, who lead their salt caravans through the Tenere, a desert within a desert. We will know their customs, their beliefs and their way of life and we will discovery the challenges they face today to continue living as they have always done: with no borders or governments.
“Wild Team” (1 x 52’) is also new to this market. It is the latest production of the Natural History Unit. Three armies are to fight the challenge of colonization of three different territories, isolated from the rest of the world. The success of their mission will change them forever. But keeping the new territories free of invaders is a task that will keep them permanently in the line of fire.
Through different and singular protagonists (a sea iguana, a sifaka, a wallaby a gecko, a family of ring-tailed lemurs…) we will understand how Nature manages to colonize and evolve on islands. With this colonizing army we will accompany the ones in charge of recognising the new territory, the first ones to detect the new land.
The series “Last Hunters” (5 x 52’) is also one of the highlights of the company. This is a coproduction by Explora Films with the German company “Ma.ja.de” commissioned by MDR and ART. This documentary series portrays the different traditional hunting methods used by five ethnic groups for their survival.
Explora Films will also pitch a project in development about the life of the Basque artist Eduardo Chillida.
Carlos Sevillano, Head of Distribution, declared: “Our goal in this market is not only to offer our broad documentary catalogue, but also to reach strategic bonds that will allow us to continue making new documentaries in this region and spread the cultural heritage to the world”.
