The Visual World of OKAPIA
OKAPIA was originally established in 1954 by Michael Grzimek and his father, Professor Bernhard Grzimek, to produce documentary films. The two most famous – "No Room for Wild Animals" and "The Serengeti must not die” – were translated into 26 languages, shown in over 60 countries and showered with movie awards. The Serengeti film is to this day the only documentary in the German language to have been awarded an Oscar.
The production of this film marked the laying of the foundation stone of the picture archive. And what started with animals and plants has developed, with (natural) scientific themes, travel photography and many other subject areas, into a universal, internationally working picture agency.
