Film Title: Forbidden Zone: Wildlife on the Battlefield
Director: Szabolcs Mosonyi
Duration: 43 minutes
Synopsis: Barely within reach of Budapest, at the edge of Táborfalva, a sign arrests visitors: “Danger: Entry is Forbidden!” The forbidden zone begins here, at the edge of Hungary’s second largest military live ammunition practice range. The area has been used for this purpose for over 150 years. Despite the danger and the ban, the zone is still densely populated. Numerous species of plants and animals live here in secret, including rare creatures that have almost disappeared from the cultivated landscape of the Great Plain. Their presence in the shooting range inadvertently protects them.
