Spring: The Return of Life

Spring: The Return of Life takes a look at when nature transforms during spring in the Iberian Peninsula, a mountainous region near the border of Spain and Portugal.

To film this glorious event, the documentary sets out to film for five months in the Iberian Peninsula. Here we’ll get well aquatinted with nature and its great forests, lakes, plains, saltworks, flora and fauna.

We witness unique moments like the mating of the viperine water snake and the long journey into maturity of the natterjack toad.

We contemplate the courtship of the bee eaters, the frolic of the flamingos or the cheerful movements of the little owls, accompanied by a cohort of small birds that invade Spain and Portugal.

They are the “Alravanes” – lesser spotted woodpeckers, herons, great crested grebes, storks and vultures who all meet at a spectacle in which these animals are the privileged protagonists.
