The region around Lake Constance has much more to offer than good wine and beautiful nature. For example, here the sculptor Peter Lenk treats entertaining, as well as provoking art in stone, or you can find rhinos from bygone, earthly-historical eras.

For some, a holiday without Lake Constance would be unthinkable, but in the long run it will eventually be impossible, because Lake Constance will be completely silted up in about 15 - 20,000 years. But before this will happen, there are a many other peculiarities that this popular region has to offer beyond the tourist aspect. To explore this, in his documentary "Der Bodensee" sends director Peter Prestel the presenters Sven Plöger and Lena Ganschow looking for clues.

The film score is stylistically relatively varied and spans a range from traditional, folkloristic instruments, such as dulcimer or zither, over rocking guitar sounds, up to orchestral cues. All this, however, in a more modern, effective and sometimes repetitive context. A certain minimalism runs through the entire score. In addition to cues with acoustic instruments, electronic sounds can also be heard.

Besides various animations, many other scenes in the movie are supported by a detailed sound design, to bring the visual level also acoustically to full advantage.

The documentary "Spuren im Stein - Der Bodensee" will be broadcast on SWR TV on September 22 at 8:15 pm and will then be available in the SWR Media Center.
