    (click on "cc" for English subtitles) In Neidlingen, a small town below the ruins of the Reussenstein castle on the northern edge of the Swabian Alb biosphere reserve, the only German marble maker has his manufactury. Stefan Metzler learned the craft of milling marbles from old marble makers in Germany and Austria more than 20 years ago. Many years later he refined the process and built up the marble mill and the manufactury in and next to the small river „Seebach“ in Neidlingen. He is fascinated by the different types of stones of the Swabian Alb, the uniqueness of each marble sphere and the power that water has. This multimedia reportage is part of the www.von-der-alb.de project about the Swabian Alb biosphere reserve in southern Germany.

        Awards: Atlantic Film Festival 1983 Water power is known as the sleeping giant of renewable energy sources. In 1900 there were over 100,000 small water-power sites in operation in North America. With the advent of cheap fossil fuels many of them fell into disrepair. In the early 1980's New England was the scene of the resurgence of small scale hydro electric projects. This film concentrates on three new hydro entrepreneurs who have brought up old dam sites and are rebuilding them for the production of power. This work attracts a special breed of person, someone who is fascinated by the technology, the history and the elegance of this method of generating power. These entrepreneurs delight in the fact that things have come full circle, and that water power which built their communities, is once a again responsible for their revitalization.

          Screenings: In November 1983 Water Power was featured in "What's Happening?" a weekly series of new films of provocative social and political interest at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Description: This film is a short history of small-scale hydro generating plants including interviews with advocates of alternate energy who are promoting this alternative to power megaprojects. It documents the process of installing a low head, hydroelectric system for domestic use on the filmmaker's rural homestead in Mabou, Cape Breton. The film traces the history of this alternative source of energy through archive footage, still photography and visits to operating units of various sizes including household and domestic units. People interviewed for the film include manufacturers, consultants, and small-scale operators. The filmmaker draws from his personal experience of what it was like to develop his own hydro unit from conception to the production of power. An award winner at the Atlantic Film Festival.

                    Peace and prosperity, new living space and energy in abundance - these are the promises of a vision from the 1920s that was highly popular in Europe and elsewhere for decades, but has fallen into oblivion: Atlantropa. The initiator of this futuristic dream was a Munich architect named Herman Soergel (1885-1952). His aim was nothing less than lowering the level of the Mediterranean. A gigantic dam in the Straits of Gibraltar, 20 miles in length, would cut off the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean. New lands would rise; huge hydroelectric power plants would be erected; Europe and Africa would merge to form a new continent: “Atlantropa”. Soergel firmly believed that only a large-scale international peace project like Atlantropa would save the world from war and destruction.
