TV Premiere:

The red line - Resistance in Hambach Forest

TV Premiere of The red line - Resistance in Hambach Forest from Karin de Miguel Wessendorf on 25th of September 2019 at 22:55, WDR.

"When 31,000 policemen take action against 50 tree squatters and tear gas and truncheons are used, a 550-hectare "pedunculate oak-hornbeam-lily-of-the-valley-forest" becomes a symbol of resistance. Since 2015, director Karin de Miguel Wessendorf has accompanied the protests against the clearing of the Hambacher forest and against the destruction of the villages on the edge of the lignite opencast mining, the largest CO2 source in Europe. First it was only a rebellion of individual groups with different goals, but in the autumn of 2018 the protest against the clearing finally becomes one broad supraregional movement."

TV Premiere:

TV Premiere of "Can electric cars save the environment?" from Florian Schneider and Valentin Thurn. 3rd of June 2019 at 22.45, ARD.

 

"Electric cars should save the environment. They are considered to be particularly environmentally friendly, are praised by the industry as emission-free, and have a decisive role in the plans of the Federal Government for the fulfillment of the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

And Germany wants to be at the forefront of the global growth market. In order to bring as many e-cars on the road, the Bundestag has already decided in 2016 a purchase premium for electric and hybrid cars. Car manufacturers are always introducing new top models. And with a current view of diesel scandal, excessive fine dust limits and imminent driving bans an electric future seems irreversible."
