The Beach - Wildlife underneath the Parasol

52' or 43' / HD + 4K

Sun, sand and sea - for us humans, beaches are the epitome of holidays and relaxation. But they are also habitats for animals and plants. An amazing microcosm of nature unfolds between parasols and deckchairs - if you look closely. The actual inhabitants of the beach have developed different strategies to adapt to the tourist hustle and bustle. Whether beach cat, seagull, sand flea, octopus or crab - they all cope well with the annual occupation of their habitat. The film tells beach stories from the animals’ point of view - sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, and always surprising.
