Tracking the Jura Dinosaurs

  • Description
  • Storyboard
  00:33:00  2007  Color  Sound

This 30-minute documentary links together the research on the dinosaur track sites carried out on both sides of the Franco-Swiss border. It means that a map of this cooperation on the theme of the Jura can be drawn up which could well prove to be crucial for the future of palaeontological research in Europe.
Remarkable 3D pictures of the piecing together of these disappeared worlds complement the assessment made in the field by the teams of researchers in Coisia (France) and Courtedoux (Switzerland). The Swiss researchers are particularly interested in the discovery of new, smaller tracks that evoke the passage of a herd of dinosaurs… The film finishes with a symbolic meeting on the very promising new site of Loulle (France).
