Carpenters of the Wood

Zimmerleute des Waldes, Deutschland 1954, © Heinz Seelmann

This film shows never-before-seen images from the interior of a woodpecker’s nest hole, close-ups of the bird’s search for food with its very long tongue and infra-red pictures of its behaviour in complete darkness.
Besides its technical innovations, the film is a celebration of the way of life of this forest bird with a powerful beak.
