Unbekanntes Kalifornien: Zwischen Küste und Wüste

California - for many the epitome of lifestyle known through images from Hollywood, the beach of Malibu or the famous Golden Gate Bridge. But the US state with its 40 million inhabitants is equally characterized by an immense wealth of species. Alpine mountains, foggy coasts and hot deserts provide habitats for numerous animal species as do the Pacific Ocean and the miles of uninhabited coastline of the Baja California peninsula.

Director: Rick Rosenthal

"Rick Rosenthal is a four-time Emmy, and BAFTA award-winning filmmaker, recognized for his cinematography of ocean wildlife. He was a trail-blazer filming in the open ocean – the waters far from land and thousands of feet deep. Over the years, Rick has filmed some of the most challenging marine wildlife subjects on our planet. Among his achievements are three award-winning programs on the great whales – Riddle of the Right Whale, Humpback Whales and Sperm Whales Back From the Abyss for BBC. His latest work is WHALE WISDOM, produced by Wild Logic, for Terra Mater.
