There are worlds barely visible to the human eye. Lives we barely notice. Stories that fade into oblivion.


Hungary was once a land of waters. Full of extraordinary creatures. From mountain forests to the depths of the underworld. Worlds created and made unique by water. But now, it is this very treasure, water, is what's pouring out of our hands. As we expand, the last of Hungary's wild waters are being squeezed back.

Where nature still plays to the rhythms of the past... Where wildlife has to fight fierce battles for prey, the right to mate, and to raise the next generation... It's there that this hidden world reveals its secrets.


From the director of "Where Rivers Run Wild: Aqua Hungarica" and "Land of Waters: Created by Man, Overtaken by Nature", this will be the last film in the trilogy. "Hidden World: The Story of Hungary's Wild Waters" is a Hungarian nature documentary that features rarely seen creatures and aquatic ecosystems that often live in close proximity to us humans, yet are almost completely unnoticed. It also shows the impact of the droughts and extremes that are so common in this decade. This is the story of the last wild waters.
