The president of the Diputación de Alicante, Carlos Mazón, has presided over the ADDA premiere of the feature-length documentary "Mediterraneum Terra", a work shot entirely in the province, in 60 municipalities, nine mountain ranges, seven natural parks, four rivers and five reservoirs, which deals with the wildest nature, its ecosystem and its most remote, diverse and spectacular landscape.
«Anything I tell you I will fall short, because we are convinced that it will surprise you. It is a province that we have greatly respected over the centuries because we have been able to combine tourism with care for our environment”, Mazón acknowledged.
The president has pointed out that any element of this documentary has an Alicante stamp, from the music to the execution.
"It is not a documentary for our joy and pride, but rather we are privileged because we are at the zero point of something that will go through many eyes and senses," he added.
The documentary, directed by the director José Pérez Ramírez, has been filmed between 2018 and 2020 during the four seasons of the year, through more than 1,500 hours of filming and 800 condensed drone flights.
The audiovisual production has included wildlife filming specialists such as the naturalists and photographers Ramón Navarro and José B. Ruiz, while the original soundtrack has been composed by Luis Ivars and performed by the former Alicante Province Youth Orchestra ( OJPA), current Ensemble de la Mediterrània.
RTVE has acquired the rights to broadcast the documentary from the Diputación for the next five years. «Mediterraneum Terra» will be completed with a second chapter: «Mediterraneum Mar», which will show the richness of the Alicante coastline and the diversity of the species that inhabit it.
