Crowdfunding since 2010
Undune is a documentary about an alternative place to do your “business”, the resurrection of an ancient method from the Amazons region and the battle of a few innovative people to dry up the wasteful culture of water toilets: Instead of using drinking water to flush away and destroy our manure, it can be transformed into a valuable resource - black soil or terra preta.

Our project Undune culminates today with the release of the film on Vimeo under a Creative Commons license. We had 2 years of intense production occompanied by a crowdfunding campaign. We nourished Undune by finding film festivals that wanted to show it and by organizing screenings. We gave it its first small wings by producing DVDs and putting it on VHX as VoD. But now it is time for it to fly by itself. We would like to thank all the countless people that helped us in the aforementioned steps. It is you who this release is dedicated to. Let's stay questioning.

Unser Projekt Undune erreicht heute seinen Höhepunkt mit der Veröffentlichung des Films auf Vimeo unter einer Creative-Commons-Lizenz. Wir hatten zuerst 2 Jahre intensiver Produktion begleitet von einer Crowdfunding -Kampagne. Wir nährten dann Undune, indem wir Filmfestivals fanden, die den Film zeigen wollten, und indem wir weitere Vorführungen organisierten. Wir gaben Undune seine ersten kleinen Flügel durch die Produktion von DVDs und die Bereitstellung als VoD auf VHX. Aber jetzt ist es an der Zeit für Undune von selbst zu fliegen. Wir möchten uns bei all den unzählige Menschen bedanken, die uns in den vorgenannten Schritten geholfen haben. Sie sind es, denen diese Veröffentlichung gewidmet ist. Lasst uns neugierig bleiben!

7 days before the end of the campaign, we have paid the lacking amount to reach the funding threshold. For that, we used ​​additional funds from EM Scheiz-AG, Christoph Fischer GmbH and Multikraft GmbH. Our work can thus begin.
But don't be discouraged to support us. We can invest additional money for the translation of the film into other languages ​​and a wider distribution.
