THE TIME OF FORESTS
Directed by Francois-Xavier Drouet, France, 2018, 103min, French
*English and Hungarian subtitles
Synopsis:
As the symbol of authentic, preserved, wild nature, forests are undergoing an unprecedented phase of industrialization. Heavy mechanization, monoculture, fertilizers and pesticides, loss of traditional know-how, forest management—all follow the intensive agricultural model at an accelerated rhythm. The Time of Forests is a journey to the heart of industrial forestry and its alternatives. A living forest or a green desert, the choices of today will define tomorrow's landscape.
