About the project

House martins are on the red list. In our cities, their living space decreases more and more. A movie to demonstrate how various trades join forces to save the swallows during an architectural transformation.

To reveal the house martins, but also the transformation of a derelict land into a new modern assignment while respecting and protecting the nature, here is the challenge Teenergy’s cameras will take by giving a voice to the various trades and to the swallows during their stay on the spot, from April to September and by following the transformation of the building.

«Who are these swallows? What attracts them to Clarens? How do they live and what do they need during and after the transformation? How to cohabit with them?» These are some of the questions that the 13 minutes film will try to answer. Click here for more informations!
