The Meadow - Paradise Lost

The divers and manifold flower meadow is a paradise, a hotspot of biodiversity right in front of our doorstep! „The Meadow – Paradise Lost?“ is an exploration of this colourful habitat. How come this habitat only exists, if it is destroyed regularly? Why do so many creatures make their home in a meadow that is cut down by machines twice a year? Can´t we just leave the meadows alone, let them grow, stop cutting them? This film answers all these questions and the film talks about the drastic decline in divers meadows all over the world. Modern agriculture has brought this habitat close to extinction.
