HoF 2019: The Team of BUTENLAND
The GRANIT - Hof Documentary Award 2019 goes to BUTENLAND by Marc Pierschel.

Inspiring is Marc Pierschel's BUTENLAND, for which he received the GRANIT - Hof Documentary Film Award at the 53rd Hof International Film Festival. The TV premiere is on Sunday, 3 April 2022 at 11:35 pm on MDR.

The film tells the story of former dairy farmer Jan Gerdes and animal welfare activist Karin Mück, who focus on the needs of the animals, far from any economic interests. Filmmaker Marc Pierschel accompanied the two with his camera on Hof Butenland over a period of more than two years.

He "...shows this as an idyll, even as a utopia, without wagging the big moral finger. With quiet tones and calm images, he transports the atmosphere of the farm and at the same time characterizes its makers."
