Crash 2030 - The Anatomy of a Catastrophe

Germany, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Environmental Programme)

Director: Joachim Faustich

It is not Germany in 1945, but the year 2030. Dead forests stretch from the Alps to the North Sea, devastating floods inundate the coastal towns. In the summer months the Rhine is a parched river bed and in the winter huge floods sweep through the valleys. Computer graphics present a visionary look at the future, unless tough decisions are made in the present.
