Croatia – Natural Paradise between the Danube and Adria

Croatia: picturesque bays and places, where history is as alive today. Hundreds of islands, scattered in deep blue water. This is the habitat of brown bears, lynx and red deer. Here also sea eagles and imperial eagles, spoonbills, purple and grey heron are to be found in local villages, where houses are 200 years old, and where there are more storks than people. The wildlife film makers Ernst Sasse and Hans-Peter Kuttler give us a lively and sensitive portrait of Croatia.

Director: Ernst Sasse

Director: Hans-Peter Kuttler

Hans-Peter Kuttler was born in Bochum in 1971. His roots in wildlife documentaries go back to his nature photography during three tours, which took him to Canada and Alaska for several months each in the early 90th. This raised his wish to capture wildlife and nature in moving pictures. The ‚wildlife film-virus‘ had been woken up.
After studying biology in Frankfurt in 2000, Hans-Peter was an assistant at Spectrafilm, working in the genre of reportage. 2000 until 2002 he worked first as assistant and then as cameraman for Nautilusfilm. Since 2003 he is cameraman for Ernst Sasse, and since 2007 he is contributing to script and directing.
His films were made for ARD, NDR, BR, Arte, ORF and Parthenon Entertainment.
His filmography currently includes his collaboration on 17 wildlife documentaries
