MIPTV means Worldwide the year’s first big appointment on the audiovisual market. During its 2014 edition it is expected to gather together over 11.000 participants from more than 100 countries.
Explora will showcase its main new tittles for the first time to the International audiences.
“Australia: A Journey through Evolution” (1 x 52’) means Explora’s main new wildlife documentary. This film focuses on the extraordinary process of evolution that every Australian-native creature has ever gone through. 35 million years ago as this land split up from the rest of the world, their fauna started to evolve independently and separately from elsewhere’s.
We present a unique window back to the past that takes us into the early days of human being and helps us to learn more about the whole evolution of the species’ process.
Moreover, Explora Films is proud to present the docu-drama “Between two Worlds: The Story of Gonzalo Guerrero” produced by Minotauro and Teveunam and directed by Fernando González Sitges. This film tells us the amazing story of Gonzalo Guerrero, a Spanish soldier who transformed from being a maya’s slave into one of the mayan warrior chiefs who fought against the Spaniards in Yucatán.
Due to this film we can shed light on the life of this man, a traitor or a hero, and we will discover the surprising love story of Gonzalo and that would end up uniting two worlds destined to face each other.
Other highlighted projects to showcase at MIPTV are: “Cuba: Life Shelter” (1 x 52’), focused on the Island’s wildlife, “The Pearl of the Caribbean” (1 x 52’), a journey through the most characteristic places around the island of Cuba., and the anthropology series “The Last Hunters” (5 x 52’), produced by Explora Films in co-production with Germany and the French-German cultural channel ARTE.
With regard to the company’s new projects, Explora’s line-up includes “Chillida: The Depth of Air”, co-produced along with Marmoka Films and TVE, developed with the support of the MEDIA programme and with the collaboration of Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce foundation and the Zabalaga-Leku. The Depth of Air is the story of the life and work of the basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida.
It also includes “Madagascar, the Broken Island”, which bring us closer the Madagascar’s astonishing fauna. A ring-tailed lemur, a group of sifakas, giant chameleons and prehistoric birds of the size of an ox will be some of the protagonists of this story.
In the words of Carlos Sevillano, general manager at Explora Films, “We attend MIPTV once again with new high-profile tittles which consolidates Explora as the main film company of documentaries produced in Spain for the world. We hope to keep maintaining our clients -worldwide TV channels- confidence which has allowed us to be their usual documentary content provider. Documentaries intended to satisfy the toughest audiences”.
