European Nature Film Festivals 10+1 Book Project

author :  JOYUN LEE


The goats and their shepherd walk along Száva River, follow the traces of grass. They across the Carpathian Mountains, singing each traditional songs in the open highlands, starting from the Hungarian language, and then, in Serbian, Slovak, Russian, and Romanian. How wide a land where one river flows through, how many habitats of languages co-exist. The grass and the goats do not speak, who are standing at the national border. Just like all the ordinary civilians in this kingdom of Nature.

Inspired by a Hungarian nature film 

“Pastorale”, directed by Sáfrány József, 

Cutural Values Award 2017 of Gödöllő Nature Film Festival in Hungary

Europe, the definition of geography, is a land more than 10 million square kilometers. It spans Temperate and Frigid Zones. There are warm oceans in the southwest, steep mountains in the east, and freezing ice in the north. But the definition of humanity, time separates history and politics distinguishes national boundaries. In the 21st century, Europe has more than 50 countries. They use different considerations in the same mountains, oceans, and Rivers.
