Night of the Salamander


The film reveals all the miracles and curiosities in the salamander world that, until now, were only known to a few experts in the field. In technical terms, the film team went to some lengths: Thermal image cameras show that salamanders are as cold as the night they inhabit, night vision cameras allow the viewer to watch them in the dark, magnetic resonance tomography and x-ray images show us the inside of their bodies.
Written and directed by Manfred Christ. Camera: Bernhard Wallentin, Sound: Rene Schuh. Produced by Cosmos Factory for ORF in association with Docstar
