The Drumheller Valley has been seen on the big screen in past Hollywood films and now the Badlands will be featured on a cultural channel in Germany and France.
"The documentary is all about the Badlands; the landscapes, the people, the cultural life, the Badlands. It's a beautiful part of Canada," explained Rene Dame, Cinematographer for the documentary.
"We will get to know the country by stopping at Drumheller, Oyen, we already filmed the Bull-O-Rama and we went to the Tyrrell Museum of course," explained Christina Degen, Director of the documentary.
The documentary will be broadcast at the end of the year on the channel Arte, a French-German cultural channel.
"It will be broadcast at the end of the year and once it's been broadcast it will be online for one week. Everybody will have the opportunity to see it online and probably after that it might be on YouTube," noted Degen.
The documentary crew expressed to 99.5 Drum FM that they love Canada and our culture, which is mainly why they wanted to film the Badlands.
"We are just very happy to be here, to see this wonderful area of Canada and we hope we make a very good documentary so the people will like to see it and visit Canada after," concluded Vivien Vogel, the documentary's Sound Engineer.
