The visually striking documentary Wild Slovenia presents the very diverse fauna and flora of Slovenia, focusing on mammals and birds, and shows some particularly interesting species of amphibians, fish, insects and plants – from the endemic proteus to brown bears. We venture among the highest Alpine peaks and into the remote Dinaric forests; we travel across the Pannonian plains, descend into the underground caves of the Karst world and dive into the Adriatic Sea. In each region, we get to know the animal world typical of it.
The film is a beautifully filmed and captivating audio-visual presentation of the rich and diverse animal kingdom in Slovenia. The author drew inspiration from his own experience during the years of observation and professional photographing of animals and nature. Stunning details, slowed down scenes, aerial shots, time laps imagery, underwater footage and other creative methods turn the film into a unique and overwhelming experience.
