New film about wildlife in Amsterdam, the Netherlands


This video, with subtitles in English and German, is about a mute swan family in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

According to Dutch daily Het Parool today, the makers of succesful film De Nieuwe Wildernis (The New Wilderness), about Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve, have plans for a new film.

It will be called De Wilde Stad (The Wild City). Its subject is wildlife in Amsterdam, capital city in the Netherlands.

The intention is to have five animals as main characters. It is not yet sure which five species they will be. Provisionally, the filmmakers think about a coot, a grey heron, a brown rat, and a red fox.

Filming will start next month. The plans are for the movie to be in the cinemas before the end of 1916.
