Turtle Shells


Turtle Shells




CATALOGUE TEXT
The European regulations on species protection, escape from Syria, foreign missions of the German army and a small turtle whose carapace was once painted with the flag of the Syrian rebels … A rescue centre for reptiles in Munich, managed by Markus Baur, is the hub of all these encounters. Baur talks about the German mania for control and teaches soldiers how to behave when they see a snake. The film has spider’s eyes – meaning many.
