Wunder der Karibik

Die Welt der Blumentiere

Caribbean coral coasts and islands, formed out of living and once-living creatures, are now a labyrinth of life. Every year in a stunning synchronized display of coral spawning, the “flower animals” re-colonise the reefs. Inland, Caribbean cloud

forests with their legendary Quetzals are just as magical, but the suffocating sediment run-off from logging is the corals’ biggest challenge.


Director: Bernhard Rübe

born 1970, founded ruebefilm in 2001. Before that, he studied biology and gained varied film experience, among others with the renowned underwater filmmaker Walter Sigl, who gave him an understanding of the basics of being a freelance producer: "You have to know how to do everything". We're still working on it.
Our top priorities are the use of excellent cameras, interesting narrative elements and submerging into the waters and exciting corners of the earth.
