The film «Wild Innsbruck» leads viewers along an often poorly defined boundary between two worlds, describing the inevitable encounters between humans and animals in the Alpine region.
We encounter chamois, ibex, stoats and ptarmigans, all of which are faced with changes in their habitats, with different effects from species to species. Stoats use corridors of artificial snow as their hunting ground for better camouflage. Chamois have discovered quarries as a new habitat, living between excavators and trucks. Sensitive species like rock ptarmigans, on the other hand, suffer from human disturbance.
And then, just beyond the next ridge, Innsbruck's mountains bedazzle us with astonishing wilderness and exciting behavior of wild animals. We get to witness the hatching of owlfly larvae, filmed for the first time. The documentary also boasts astonishing images of three different woodpecker species competing to feed off an ant colony on a single tree.
