The Secret of the Forgotten Ruins – How Nature Conquers Habitats

Man against nature - nature against man. Powerful opponents. Photographer Sven Fennema follows their struggle - in lost and abandoned places, like one in northern Italy. Where cars were once built, plants are reclaiming their space - even in the most inhospitable of places. Until man stops them. Who will win the duel in the end? Can there even be a "winner"?

The film is screened in the same block as Death at the Zoo – Why Zoos Kill Healthy Animals.
