Go East: Around the World on the 50th Parallel (2 x 45')

The 50th parallel runs clear across Europe, across the most varied of landscapes. An expedition led by Jens-Uwe Heins und Felix Heidinger set out to trace the parallel around the world - to find out how much its landscape, its flora and fauna change, and how much it stay the same. What they come up with is remarkable: breathtaking vistas which could hardly be more different, from cultivated European farmland to deserts with enormous temperate swings, active volcanoes, steaming geysers to arctic cold and the vast reaches of the great oceans. The doc series "50th Parallel" offers five installments on one and the same latitude in all its multifaceted forms - with some intimate glimpses at the personal lives of the film crew as well.
