  • Bhutan – change comes to the Himalayan Happy Kingdom | DW Documentary

    42:27

    Bhutan's other name is The Happy Kingdom. The small Himalayan country has one foot in the distant past and the other in the digital age. It's quite a balancing act for Bhutan's citizens.

    No other country has recently undergone more radical change than Bhutan. The millennium brought television, the internet and democratization to the last Himalayan kingdom almost overnight. The capital Thimphu has become one of South Asia's fastest growing cities. At the same time, just a few kilometers to the north, 20 thousand nomads still live from herding yak on the high plains of the Himalayas. This documentary tells of the challenges these people face.

    We meet young Chewang , who often has to leave his family for months and trek to heights above five thousand meters in search of the caterpillar fungus, a fabled medicinal mushroom. We also follows the journey of five-year-old Doryi, who is separated from his poverty-stricken family when they send him to a monastery. Meanwhile, the committed organic farmer Choki is trying to bring the advantages of modern life to her village. And 73-year-old bowman Ap Chimi is finding the modern world quite a challenge, so he's decided to compete in his last archery tournament to show youngsters in the village that he can still hit the bull's eye as easily as they do.
    This documentary takes viewers on a trip through a time that mirrors Western development in the last century. The loss of a communal life in harmony with nature is juxtaposed against the gains made through globalization. Director Irja von Bernstorff, who has made her home in the Happy Kingdom, gives us a unique peek behind the country's tourist façade to reveal what makes the wondrous world of Bhutan so special.

  • Bhutan: The Pursuit of Happiness | 101 East

    25:01

    In the small, secluded country of Bhutan, happiness is not just a traditional way of life - it is a national statistic.

    Bhutan’s government introduced Gross National Happiness as a measure of the nation’s progress.

    Opening the country up to international tourism has allowed for some development, but the weight of tradition still weighs heavily on the kingdom’s young generation. Not everyone gets to enjoy the perks of a modern lifestyle.

    101 East explores the cost of happiness in this hermit kingdom.

    8:14

    This mysterious and picturesque country located between India and China was closed for tourists until 1974. Today, everyone who’s ready to go through a lot of formalities and has enough money can visit Bhutan. Ans even though the borders are open, the King still tries to restrict the number of tourists using many different methods.

Sounds unbelievable, but this is all true about Bhutan, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. So, wanna know why all the people who live in Bhutan are so happy?

    SUMMARY:
    - If a person loses their home, they just need to go to the king and he’ll give them a plot of land where they can build a house to live in and plant a garden to eat from.
    - Each Bhutanese resident has the right to free medical care. The country’s Ministry of Health has made it their goal to become “A nation with the best health.”
    - The Bhutanese people take their traditions and unique culture very seriously, and the king took great measures to protect his people from outside influences.
    - Speaking of traditions, Bhutanese people are required to wear traditional clothes in public. This nationwide dress code has existed for over 400 years.
    - In 2010, the king enacted a law prohibiting the cultivation, harvest, and sale of tobacco, making Bhutan the first country in the world with a total ban on tobacco. It’s impossible to buy it there, and you can’t smoke in public areas.
    - Bhutan is really concerned about ecology and nature. According to a local law, at least 60% of the country’s total area must be covered with woods.
    - The most popular ingredient in almost every Bhutanese dish is chilies. The Tourism Council even notes “Bhutanese people would not enjoy a meal that was not spicy.”
    - You can only go to Bhutan in groups of 3 or more. All documents and visas are issued by a state-appointed company.
    - All property and belongings like their homes, cattle, and land go to the eldest daughter, not son. Men are expected to earn their own fortunes.
    - It’s already illegal to import or use any chemical products there whatsoever. Everything they use is cultivated within the country and is all-natural.
    - Not every pilot can maneuver between mountaintops and land on a 6,500-foot-long highway right by people’s houses. Add strong winds to the challenge, and you’ll understand why take-offs and landings are only allowed during daylight hours. And there are only 8 pilots in the world that can do this.
    - If you visit Bhutan, you may fall in love with the land, but try not to fall for a local or else you’ll get your heart broken. It’s prohibited to marry foreigners.
    - In 2008, the Gross National Happiness Committee was formed in Bhutan to take care of the people’s inner peace.
    - All the road signs in Bhutan are drawn by hand. Thiumphu, the country’s capital, is the only one in the world that has no traffic lights at all.
    - Bhutanese people love to decorate their homes. They draw birds, animals, and different patterns on the walls, making them look like real-life gingerbread houses.

  • The Magnificent History Of Bhutans Royal Family | Asias Monarchies | Real Royalty

    50:34

    Bhutan's governing party pledged recently to follow the policies of the absolute monarchy it is replacing, after it won a landslide in the country's first parliamentary elections. This remote, beautiful country truly is in the throes of a noble experiment. What makes this experiment unique is that this move towards democracy has been initiated by the ruling monarch himself.

    From Elizabeth II to Cleopatra, Real Royalty peels back the curtain to give a glimpse into the lives of some of the most influential families in the world, with new full length documentaries posted every week covering the monarchies of today and all throughout history.

  • Bután - El país de la felicidad en transición | DW Documental

    42:26

    Bután es conocido como el país de la felicidad. El pequeño reino del Himalaya tiene un pie en la Edad Media y el otro en la era digital. Un equilibrio único en el mundo para sus habitantes.


    A ningún otro país del mundo el milenio le deparó tantos cambios como a Bután: la televisión, Internet y la democratización llegaron al último reino del Himalaya casi al mismo tiempo. Mientras que Timbu, la capital, es una de las ciudades con mayor crecimiento del Sudeste Asiático, a pocos kilómetros al norte, en la meseta tibetana, viven casi 20.000 nómadas cuidando yaks. Este reportaje refleja sus desafíos.El joven Tshewang a menudo debe dejar a su familia durante meses para buscar una mítica seta medicinal a más de 5.000 metros de altitud. Dorji, de cinco años de edad, se ve obligado a separarse de su familia, ya que sus padres decidieron enviarlo a un monasterio por motivos económicos. Choki, una comprometida agricultora orgánica, intenta que su pueblo acceda a la modernidad. Pero Ap Chimi, un arquero de 73 años de edad, no encuentra su lugar en el mundo moderno. Por eso, en su último torneo de tiro, quiere demostrarle a la juventud de su pueblo que todavía está en condiciones de competir.El espectador emprende un viaje en el tiempo que también refleja el desarrollo de Occidente en los últimos cien años. La pérdida de la vida comunitaria en armonía con la naturaleza contrasta con los logros de la globalización. La directora Irja von Bernstorff, que vive en Bután, revela una perspectiva sin igual detrás de las fachadas turísticas del país y muestra por qué el maravilloso mundo de Bután es tan especial.

  • Himalaya, Land of Women | Full Documentary | SLICE

    52:42

    At an altitude of nearly 4,000 meters, Sking is one of the most isolated villages in the Himalayan region of Zanskar. In just three months, from August to October, the Zanskaris have to harvest and store all their food for the coming year. All the women-young and old alike-work nonstop, from dawn to dusk, and worry about the arrival of winter.

    Filmed from the point of view of a subjective camera by a young female ethnologist, Land of Women offers a sensitive and poetic immersion in the life of four generations of women during harvesting season. We share their rare intimacy and gradually grow attached to them.

    Urgan is 9 years old. He lives in a village in the northern Himalayas, isolated at 3,800 meters above sea level. The Buddhist tradition wants him to leave his family to join his monastery. To do so, he will have to cross the Wori La pass, located at more than 5,000 meters above sea level.

  • Village Life in Nepal - A Portrait of Beautiful Takasera Village | Full Documentary

    1:30:41

    This film is a portrait of Takasera and follows every day and festival life of the village. It is a slow-paced observational documentary that touches upon the cultural, political and social realities of the region, creating the feeling of “being there”.
    This is the long (full) version of the documentary film. Watch the short version here:

    Full description:

    To the outside world, it may seem an isolated and forgotten place, but Takasera is, in fact, the centre of Kham Magar culture.

    Takasera is settled on a hill above an ancient lakebed, composed of hundreds of tightly interwoven houses, giving an appearance of a giant buzzing bee-hive. Surrounded by the mountains, and connected only by a dead-end dirt road, it leads a life of its own.

    This film is a portrait of Takasera and follows every day and festival life of the village. It is a slow-paced observational documentary that touches upon the cultural, political and social realities of the region, creating the feeling of “being there”.

  • Pakistans Himalayas & The Mysteries Of Shangri-La Utopia | Timeline

    50:23

    Legend tells of a utopian kingdom hidden among the towering mountains of inner Asia. A paradise on Earth, yet a place apart. A place of spiritual contentment and eternal life. A place that’s become known to the West as Shangri-La. For century’s romantics, adventurers and the devout risked their lives searching for this heaven on Earth. Many perished in the quest. Those who returned told of a journey through hostile lands, of crossing treacherous mountain passes & desert gorges in their search for a valley where people live for hundreds of years. To this day its whereabouts remains a mystery...

    David Adams goes in search of Shangri-La in the icy valleys of the Himalaya and Karakoram Mountains in Far North Pakistan.

  • Deadliest Roads | The Himalayas | Free Documentary

    44:54

    The Leh–Manali Highway is a 429 km (267 mi) long highway in northernmost India connecting Leh, the capital of the union territory of Ladakh, to Manali in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It connects the Manali Solang valley to the Lahaul and Spiti valleys in Himachal Pradesh and the Zanskar valley in Ladakh. It is open for only about five months in a year, from mid-May or June (when the snow is cleared from the highway) to October, when snowfall again blocks the high passes on the highway. However, the Lahaul valley will now remain connected to Manali for most part of the year through Atal tunnel.

    The Leh–Manali Highway has been designed, built and being maintained by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) of the Indian army. It supports the heaviest army vehicles.
    The average elevation of Leh-Manali highway is more than 4,000 m (13,000 feet)[1] and its highest elevation is 5,328 m (17,480 ft) at the Taglang La mountain pass. It is flanked by mountain ranges on both sides, featuring stunning sand and rock natural formations.

    The road between Leh-Manali in Ladakh.
    The highway crosses many small streams of ice-cold water from snow-capped mountains and glacial melts without a bridge and it requires driving skill to negotiate fast-flowing streams. The landscape changes immediately after getting past the Atal tunnel and the greenery starts receding upon entering the Chandra river valley in the Lahaul region that lies in the rain-shadow. After crossing Darcha, the greenery completely disappears and the mountain slopes on the leeward side become brown and arid. However, the mountain peaks are covered in snow and shine brightly in the sun.
    The Leh-Manali highway is generally two lanes wide (one lane in each direction) without a road divider, but has only one or one and a half lanes at some stretches. It has over a dozen Bailey bridges and many of them are now being upgraded to two-lane steel bridges.. The highway has many damaged stretches and under-maintained portions, where even a little rainfall can trigger dangerous landslides. The road quality is poor from Zingzingbar to Pang and high speed can cause discomfort.

  • Bhutan: The Dictatorship of Happiness | Official Trailer

    2:17

    COMING SOON | Hidden away in the Himalayan foothills, Bhutan is a country reputed for its exquisite natural beauty and the importance its people place on individual happiness. The Bhutaneses’ acute environmental awareness has led it to being the only carbon-negative country in the world. To many, the small nation seems like a model for the rest of the world.

    But behind this idyllic façade there lies a more sinister reality. Buddhism is the only religion tolerated by the Wangchuck dynasty who have ruled the country for the last century. This ultra-conservative regime is closely intertwined with the Buddhist faith. The flocks of millionaires and Hollywood stars who arrive in Bhutan to work on their karma can only be accommodated thanks to the toil of terribly paid workers. This film explores the dynasty’s rule while also taking a look at the youthful counterculture movement which has emerged since the country’s exposure to the internet.

  • The Nomadic Night | SLICE | Full documentary

    1:20:33

    At an altitude of 4500 meters, on the highest plateaus of Karnak in the Himalayan région of Ladakh, in a lunar setting where the sky blends with the mineral immensity, director Marianne Chaud filmed the movements of these last nomads. Immersed for months in their community, speaking their language, she placed her camera as close as possible to their voices and gestures, offering viewers encounters of a rare intimacy. As much as the splendor of the landscapes, the extreme harshness of the living conditions or the emotion shared with these nomads, it is this closeness that creates the magic of the film.

    Documentary The Nomadic Night
    Direction: Marianne Chaud
    Production: ZED (Manuel Catteau) for ARTE France

    With thanks to Ladakh, to all the nomadic people of Karnak,

  • A Day In A Himalayan Forest | Documentary Film Nepal

    13:30

    Himalayan forests are home to abundant biodiversity. Forests play an important role in the livelihoods of rural people worldwide, particularly in the poorest socio-economic groups (i.e., indigenous peoples, peasant communities, tribal and rural societies) living in and around forested areas. In this film we follow a group of Kham Magars from Mid-Western Nepal that set on a journey to the high Himalayas to gather wood for building a village house. The wood was collected at the altitude of 3500m (11500ft) above the village of Maikot in Rukum District.

  • The Akha tribe in Laos: Between tradition and modernity | DW Documentary

    42:12

    The Akha in Laos live almost untouched by modern civilization. They still adhere to their archaic customs. But they are on the verge of upheaval.

    Cut off from the rest of the world, without a paved road, the village of Peryensang Mai has remained almost untouched by modern civilization to this day. Its inhabitants are from the Akha tribe, and they seem to live in a different time: Their language isn’t even written down; their everyday life is defined by the laws and rituals handed down from their ancestors such as animal sacrifices to ward off bad luck. This adherence to customs that are often quite brutal endows the Akha’s lives with stability and direction. The women of the village have a particularly busy life. Because the Akha are largely self-sufficient, their tasks range from agriculture to housework and making traditional clothing. This documentary tells the story of the Laovan family. Mother Yeapheun has always had to work hard to support her large family. Her husband is the village elder and ensures the Akha observe the strict laws and commandments. The couple and their eldest children cannot imagine life beyond the mountaintop, so the family is pinning its hopes on youngest son Kienglom, who has been going to school in a nearby town since he was eleven years old. Like many mountain tribes in Laos, the Akha are facing a difficult choice: between a move down into the valley, which would mean they would have electricity, running water and better medical care - but also abandoning their ancient rituals. The film takes the viewer on an emotional journey of discovery to a tribe torn between tradition and modernity and facing the need to reinvent itself in today's world.

  • Oil promises – how oil changed a country | DW Documentary

    1:24:53

    When oil was discovered in Ghana in 2007, the country began to dream big. It dreamed that the ‘black gold’ would bring economic upswing and long-awaited prosperity to its nation. But what happens when dreams and globalization meet?

    The global economy continues to rely on oil — but the so-called ‘black gold’ is becoming scarce. If a country has oil, so we tend to believe, it has all it needs to become a wealthy country. When oil was discovered in Ghana in 2007, Ghanaians also believed that economic prosperity would soon sweep over their country. By 2010, drilling had started. Ghana was determined to do better than Nigeria, a country that exports oil, but has to import gasoline.

    This documentary, shot over a period of ten years, is a case study of globalization. Filmed in a coastal region where people lived off fishing and rubber cultivation for decades, it shows the impact the oil discovery has had on their lives. Would the promises come true? Would the ‘black gold’ bring modern life and progress, paved streets, electricity and jobs even to small villages? Filmmaker Elke Sasse and journalist Andrea Stäritz spent ten years documenting the developments on Ghana’s western coast. Nigerian animator Ebele Okoye adds her personal perspective through art, as a citizen of a nation hit by the oil curse.

  • Exotic BHUTANESE STREET FOOD + Driving Through the Himalayas to Haa Valley | Bhutan

    22:09

    ???? MyBhutan:
    ???????? Visit Bhutan:
    ???? WATCH: More Bhutan Episodes -

    My seventh day in Bhutan was the beginning of yet another incredible adventure in the western region of the country. Come along with me as I enjoy some exotic Bhutanese street food on my way through the Himalayas to Haa Valley in western Bhutan!

    My day began in the capital city of Thimphu. My friend and guide from MyBhutan, Tsheten, and I set off toward Haa Valley with our driver Nidup. The valley had been closed to Westerners until 2002.

    We followed the main highway to a hut-like shop that was like part convenience store, part restaurant. There, they had the outer skin of the yak, tripe, lungs, beef sausage, pork sausage, veal, and more. It was spicy, non-veg organ meat!

    I started with some ngaja, or milk tea, while Tsheten and Nidup got the suja, or butter tea. Then, I dove into the most exotic breakfast I’ve ever eaten! I had beef lungs, tripe (beef stomach), two pork blood sausages, and ezay.

    The pork blood sausage was super spicy and tasted like morcilla! It was nice, juicy, and dense. Then, I dug into the lungs, which was good! It had a similar consistency to kidneys. It was so soft and full of numbing spices. I loved the spice level. It was so good!

    Next was the tripe. It was really tasty but a little tough. Then, I added more ezay to it. It tasted like a medium or overcooked flank steak! There was a fleshy side and a more gelatinous side.

    The ezay wasn’t too spicy. It was more like a chili paste. It was made with chili powder, onion, tomato, and oil. The sausage was one of my favorite morcillas ever! Overall, the spice level was maybe a 7 out of 10. Then, I finished with some porridge made from boiled rice, paneer, and chili powder. I could feel the chilies in it!

    From there, we left the stand and hit the road again. Outside of Paro, we passed through a small village called Shaba and passed some fields where they grow potatoes, chilies, and other vegetables. There was also rice fields, lots of houses, and some stupas.

    We were making our way up the mountain. We passed some domesticated horses on the road. Then, we reached a viewpoint where we could get an amazing view of Paro.
    The road was the windiest one I’d ever been on.

    Then, we saw a cat leopard and then we began passing slushy patches of snow. I wanted to have a snowball fight! They use lots of salt on the road because of the snow, which mades the road bad. It got super bumpy and muddy with potholes. It was like a Bhutanese massage!

    We stopped for a second so we could have a snowball fight! Afterward, with my hands frozen, we hopped back in the car and passed lots of yaks. To our right, we could see the second-highest mountain in Bhutan, which is 7,340 meters above sea level.

    Then, we made it to the highest pass in Bhutan, Chele La. It’s 3,988 meters above sea level. The views were incredible! There were prayer flags everywhere and some prayer wheels. I could feel the altitude; it was hard for me to catch my breath. I definitely recommend wearing winter clothes there!

    From there, we had less than an hour ride to get down. The road was literally cut into the mountain. I hadn’t felt the altitude like this in a long time.

    We stopped at another viewpoint to see Haa Valley in all its glory. There was a military base and a town there. It’s a long valley surrounded by mountains. I could see a monastery with a red roof to the left.

    We made it to the bottom of the mountain. There weren’t that many people in the town. We’d finally arrived in Haa Valley. I couldn’t wait to explore it!

  • Train across Turkey: the Dogu Express | DW Documentary

    25:57

    The Dogu Express travels across Turkey from Ankara to Kars. During the nostalgic journey, the train travels at about 70 kilometers an hour and needs a full day for the 1,310 kilometer trip. Young people especially are clamoring for tickets.

    A ticket costs less than 10 euros - but because they're in short supply - bootleg fares can be more than sixteen times that price. Sometimes it takes months to get a ticket. Almost 300,000 people use the train annually. This documentary joins young devotees of the Dogu, who prefer it to low-cost airlines. They say they make the journey to slow down. The young couple, Melve and Atalay, are no exception: They booked the trip to spend quality time with one another. Conductor Hüseyin Celik has been working the route for many years and still loves his job, and the views of the beautiful landscapes the train travels through.

  • BHUTAN, the country of the THUNDER DRAGON - VisualPolitik EN

    15:59

    This video is sponsored by Newsvoice. Download Newsvoice for free:
    Let’s fix the news. Together.

    Bhutan is one of the least known and most isolated countries in the world, not only geographically, but more importantly, politically, and commercially.

    Bhutan is a small kingdom located in the heart of the Himalayas. It has a very similar land area to that of Switzerland and is also a very mountainous nation. But that's where all the similarities to the European country finish.

    With a population ten times smaller than Switzerland, and a level of development that places it among the poorest countries in the world, Bhutan is a kind of hermit kingdom that was completely turned in on itself until a few years ago.

    Its greatest international achievement? Well, according to its government, being the happiest country in the world. In fact, the country of the thunder dragon was the biggest driver of the so-called Gross National Happiness Index. So, is Bhutan really such a happy country? Want to know more about one of the most isolated and least known countries on the planet? Well, don't miss this video.

  • The Mennonites – a trip back in time | DW Documentary

    42:26

    Like the Amish in the US, the Mennonite Christian community shuns the modern world. Most Mennonites live in secluded, self-sufficient colonies. We get a rare glimpse into the life of a devout and isolated community.

    The Mennonites embrace isolation, which in their eyes helps protect them from the temptations of the modern world. At first glance, time seems to have stood still in the Mennonite colony in Belize, where people still travel by horse-drawn carriage and do without conveniences such as televisions and electricity. They still speak an old form of the German dialect Plattdeutsch. But modern life is slowly making inroads in Little Belize. Wilhelm, the community’s former doctor, was expelled for owning a mobile phone. Fearing that their community was being tainted, some more traditional members decided to found a new colony in a remote jungle in Peru, where they hope to live according to old customs and religious beliefs. For the first time ever, a camera team was granted access to one of Central and South America’s traditional Mennonite colonies.

  • Europe’s toughest dogsled race | DW Documentary

    28:26

    The Finnmarksløpet in Norway is the longest and toughest dogsled race in Europe. Among this year’s competitors are Ben Voigt from Germany and 20-year-old native Hanna Lyrek. It’s a race that is always full of surprises and setbacks.
    Participants face freezing temperatures, stormy weather and a lack of sleep. The Finnmarksløpet is to the Norwegians what the Tour de France is to the French, and it’s broadcast live on TV. Once they start out, the competitors or mushers” only have their Alaskan huskies for company, and have to decide when to take breaks. Each team can have up to 14 dogs, with at least six having to make it to the finish. Given the tough conditions, Ben Voigt trains with his pack every day from August through late May. The German started mushing ten years ago after moving to Norway. He and his wife have 35 dogs in total at their home in Langfjordbotn.

    Hanna Lyrek is a natural-born musher, having learned the art from her mother. Hanna competed in her first competition at the age of four - on her own. In 2018 she became the youngest ever entrant in the Finnmarksløpet, and this year she was among the favorites. Now 20, she’s among the best in the world - and her talents have also earned her welcome sponsorship.

    This report follows the two mushers during training and the big event itself. They tell us about the vital relationships to their trusty animals, and the importance of adapting to their needs. Will they make it to the end of the grueling endurance race? And who will finish first?

  • Tour of the Arctic – from Greenland to Alaska | DW Documentary

    42:26

    Two film crews explore the spectacular wilderness of the Arctic. The people who live there face dramatic changes. Part two takes viewers from East Greenland to Alaska.

    The region around the North Pole is one of the greatest and least-known wildernesses in the world - and it’s rapidly changing due to global warming. 350 people, most of them Inuit, live in Ittoqqortoormiit in Greenland. The nearest settlement is on neighboring Iceland. Almost 800 kilometers of Arctic Ocean separate the two islands. The film team accompanies an Inuit family through Scoresby Sound, a fjord system on the eastern coast of Greenland. They travel hundreds of kilometers in small boats through pack ice, passing icebergs as high as skyscrapers. On the way they meet whalers who are hunting for narwhals in summer. In this Inuit culture, narwhal skin and polar bear goulash have ensured survival for thousands of years. Greenpeace and WWF activists want to stop whaling and polar bear hunting - but this poses a threat to the indigenous way of life on Greenland. On the expedition through the world's largest fjord system, the team learns about the consequences of global warming: melting permafrost and a rapid increase in greenhouse gases. The changes are worrying. Some say they have brought benefits to the far north — the ice breaks up earlier and so too does the hunting season. However, the risks outweigh this benefit. The knowledge and way of life that have been passed down from generation to generation may soon be unsustainable.

  • Lehmann - the last cultural diplomat | DW Documentary

    41:25

    Cultural diplomacy is the softer power game between nations. Few people from the cultural sector have seen as much of it as Klaus-Dieter Lehmann. Lehmann has a long list of accolades. 2020 is his final year as President of the Goethe-Institut.

    Klaus-Dieter Lehmann was Director-General of the German Library in Frankfurt when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Not long after, he landed his first coup when he managed to unite the Frankfurt Library in western Germany and the German Library in the eastern German city of Leipzig. Together they would become the German National Library. It was a great achievement in diplomacy within the newly reunited nation, and one of many Lehmann can look back on. He moved on to become President of the Prussian Cultural Heritage foundation in Berlin, a role in which he was tantamount in shaping the new face of Berlin. He managed to push through the restoration of Berlin’s Museum Island and reinvented key culture centers in the German capital. It was therefore no surprise when in 2008 Lehmann was made President of the Goethe-Institut, the cultural arm of the German government, which is active worldwide. This November, his term of office as President will be ending.

    Lehmann has often been described as ‘pragmatic visionary’. He has repeatedly proven his belief in and skill at cultural diplomacy. This documentary accompanies Lehmann during the final chapter of his fifty-year career. We see him on business trips in Africa and Asia, in Frankfurt where his career started, and in Berlin, his chosen home. 2020 was a year that didn’t go according to plan - including for Lehmann. But even in such tumultuous times Lehmann maintains his knack for being in the right place at the right time. The film features interviews with people who have worked closely with Lehmann. Through their eyes, it tells the story of German cultural diplomacy over the past decades, and of Klaus-Dieter Lehmann’s impressive career.

  • Most Dangerous Ways To School | HIMALAYA | Free Documentary

    48:02

    Twice a year the forbidding journey to the boarding school is necessary. Father Latak, looks to the sky and attempts to predict how the weather will develop. Only when he is sure that no storm is brewing, he starts to prepare the children for the trip over the river. It is a route that is so notorious, that it even has a name: Chadar- the path over the cloak of ice. One last time, his ten year old son Motup, plays in front of their hut. Motup is one of the few kids who regularly leave the village in order to attend one of the the better schools in town. Then the family gets ready for the long trip. The mother has sewn thick wool socks for the father and the children, and Tebean prayers and mantras are recited for protection along the way. Then the trip begins, where the children muss trust completely the experience and skill of their father.

    The first steps, only a few kilometres until the frozen river, seem easy for the family. But father Latak recognizes immediately that the spring has come early this year and the sun has already began to compromise the ice. This is not a good sign, since the thinner the ice the more dangerous the trip becomes. Latak goes before the children and tests with a stick before each step on the ice. Often the ice cracks a bit, but the ice remains whole. Latak knows that no one should travel the Chadar without a good reason. But the education of the children is a good enough reason to take on the risks involved.
    He knows that if he goes first and the ice carries his weight, that it will also carry the weight of the children. If it does not, it will be he that will fall in the icy water and not his two children. At the same time, Latak, Motup and the other members of the crew must keep a close eye on the mountains. The massive mountain ranges on both sides of them seem to be a scene form a picture book, peaceful and lordly. But there is danger lurking. At any given time, an avalanche can break out. Many times before people have been caught by avalanches here.

    In the mean time the sun has already thawed the middle of the river. But since there are steep rocks right and left, Latak must now search for a new path for them to continue on. He leaves Motup behind him and luckily finds a way. It is a 20 cm wide path on the rocks at the edge of the river, and up to ten meters high.

    They need almost an hour, skipping from rock to rock until they finally reach an area where the river is again covered with ice. Now they must find a place to set up camp as soon as possible before it becomes dark and the temperatures sink to as low as -30 degrees Celsius. Latak knows a cave where they will be protected and finally be able to get some rest. They must gather their strength because the most dangerous part of the Chadar still lies before them.

    The ice is almost completely melted. Only a 50 cm wide strip borders right and left the ice-cold water, making the river absolutely impassible. Rocky overhangs above the ice block the way. Father and son must now crawl its way to school. Father Latak tests his way over the ice on his belly. After any progress made, he pulls his son by their hands to him.

    There are countless dangerous situations that make this way to school so unpredictable. But after four days it is over, they have reached their goal; the city of Leh and the school.

  • Beiruts cultural decline | DW Documentary

    12:34

    The explosion in Beirut was a shock for Mary Cochrane, a member of one of Lebanon’s most prominent aristocratic families. Sursock Palace, where the family lives, was severely damaged in the blast, but there‘s no money to save it.

    Beirut's reputation as the Paris of the Middle East was built on the city's many historic structures. These architectural gems elegantly combined both European and Middle-Eastern influences. After the explosion in early August, thousands of these buildings now lie in ruin. Most of them are privately owned, but their owners currently lack the means to secure them. Beirut's cultural scene is sounding the alarm: the destruction of these buildings threatens the soul of the city. But there is no money to rescue them. Donations are currently their only hope. Mary Cochrane is struggling to reconstruct the family home, or at least make it winter-proof. After all, Sursock Palace is one of the most famous landmarks in Beirut's Christian quarter, Ashrafieh. A report by Theresa Breuer and Vanessa Schlesier.

  • Colombia: An airlift against COVID-19 | DW Documentary

    12:27

    Plastic surgeon Camilo Prieto has a comfortable life in Bogotá. But since the global pandemic struck, he’s been on a mission. He flies to villages in Colombia’s hinterlands to combat the coronavirus.

    Deep in the rainforest, everything is scarce: masks, disinfectants, COVID tests, oxygen tanks. And awareness. The governments’ mandates on social distancing, hygiene measures, and exercising caution all seem so far away from reality here. Healthcare has always been poor in the rainforest villages, and now armed gangs are on the move, sometimes even attacking doctors. But none of that deters Camilo Prieto. He braves the odds and the long flight into the rainforest to help as best he can. Private volunteer pilots take helpers as far in as possible: then they press on by boat. As happy as he is to help, he knows his work can only offer a temporary solution. Sustainable change can only come about when the country tackles its systemic inequality.

    Bhutan is the country of dragon, the happiest country in the world, the country that cares about sustainability and environment. Bhutan measures GNH, Gross National Happiness.

    As a travel/tourist to Bhutan, we need to pay $250 per day, which includes hotel, food, and everything. It's expensive, but it's worthy!

    In this video, I’ll share my 10 reasons on why Bhutan is my favorite country in the world, and what I’ve learned from my Bhutan trip that helps me with a healthier mindset to live a happy life and grow a sustainable business.
    -food: they love spicy food, chili, freshness of veggies
    -simplicity: no road sign
    -nature
    -kindness of people
    -culture
    -religious belief
    -life philosophy
    -healthcare is all free
    -GNH: gross national happiness (not GDP)
    -carbon negative: the only carbon negative country in the world!!!!! trees! green!
    -sustainability concept and thinking

    I explore the philosophy of life and values. How to live happily. It's also about sustainability and environment. Let’s explore this happiest country on earth together.

    I spent ~100 hours working on filming/editing this video by myself. Hope you will like it and share with friends, who find this valuable for life exploration.

  • Most Dangerous Ways To School | COLOMBIA | Free Documentary

    48:18

    Most Dangerous Ways To School - Colombia
    In northern Colombia, in the region Bajo Cauca, more than 180 miles north of Medellín, the landscape is marked by water and seemingly endless expanses. Every day, the children who live there face this rough, unpredictable wilderness – with just one goal in mind: making it to school. Because this is their chance to break out of poverty and create a better life. Like the ten year old Kendys and the other schoolchildren.

    For this, they subject themselves to a daily dose of danger. Some of them must cross a ramshackle bridge that could collapse at any moment. Like the ten year old Kendys and some other schoolchildren. One false step and they could drown or break their legs.

    Ten-year-old Juan does not have to cross the bridge, but first he has to cross a river in an extremely wobbly canoe, and then walk through deep mud full of stingrays. Although his way is dangerous, he’s glad that he can go to school at all. It brings him a little closer to his dream of moving to a big city.

    The children face all this under tough conditions. The temperature is already 34 degrees Celsius in the morning, with humidity at 97 percent. In order to get closer to their wishes and dreams, each day these children carry not only a backpack, but also the fear – on one of the world’s most dangerous ways to school.

    Bhutan's other name is The Happy Kingdom. The small Himalayan country has one foot in the distant past and the other in the digital age. It's quite a balancing act for Bhutan's citizens.

    No other country has recently undergone more radical change than Bhutan. The millennium brought television, the internet, and democratization to the last Himalayan kingdom almost overnight. The capital Thimphu has become one of South Asia's fastest-growing cities. At the same time, just a few kilometers to the north, 20 thousand nomads still live from herding yak on the high plains of the Himalayas. This documentary tells of the challenges these people face.

  • Essential Journalists: How Coronavirus Changed TV News | Free Documentary

    Essential Journalists: How Coronavirus Changed TV News by Marcus Harun | COVID-19 Documentary

    Armed with 6-foot microphone poles, mask-clad reporters are filming interviews through windows to tell the stories of their communities, while worrying what illness they may bring back to their families. American national news producer Marcus Harun remotely interviews dozens of journalists from across the country about how the coronavirus impacted their jobs and the frightening reality of heading out into the danger zone to report vital information to the public. Some of the country’s most-watched news programs are being broadcast out of the anchor’s basements as the industry adopted work-from-home plans for the first time. At the national level, CBS lost a producer to COVID-19 and NBC lost an audio technician; a CNN anchor continued to host his show while suffering from the virus. In local news, producers grapple with limited resources to telecommute and anchors struggle to babysit their children during live newscasts. This film about social distancing was produced, edited and completed all while social distancing from home in a New York apartment.

    About Marcus Harun
    Marcus Harun is a journalist with experience working in ten newsrooms. He’s a news producer at MSNBC in New York, where he produces interviews with presidential candidates and congressional leaders and has written breaking news scripts for nearly every MSNBC anchor including Brian Williams, Craig Melvin, Andrea Mitchell, and Alicia Menendez. Before moving to New York, he worked in local news for five years. As Executive Producer of FOX Connecticut’s 7-hour morning show, he led a team of 25 reporters, anchors and producers and grew ratings 200% in one year. He earned an MBA and a BA in journalism from Quinnipiac University. He grew up in Hamden, CT and now lives in New Rochelle, NY with his wife, Rabiah.
