Antshi von Moos wins this year's DOK.talent Award (formerly Pitch Award) with the film "Von Pflanzen und Menschen". It is awarded by the Haus des Dokumentarfilms in Stuttgart. With her film project, Antshi von Moos explores the silent suffering of plants and provides insights into the world of science, which is just beginning to understand how plants interact with their environment. "If we understood plant communication better, we would have to use fewer pesticides. Natural enemies can replace the poison. This is an important step towards a sustainable way of life that does not work against nature," she says. The project is still in its research and planning phase. The prize will help to move the work forward.
Dear Antshi, congratulations!
