- Coexistence, Paradise for Every Life
|Synopsis||The former dairy farmer Jan GERDES and animal protection activist Karin MÜCK have created a place where there is no longer any livestock: a peaceful coexistence that seems almost utopian. Butenland tells the story of two people who focus on the needs of animals, far from any economic interests. Filmmaker Marc PIERSCHEL accompanied the two of them on Hof Butenland with the camera for more than two years. The intimate portrait captures moments of happiness and sadness, questions the current status of farm animals in our society, and leaves no one untouched.|
