‘Le Temps des Forêts’ documentary explores one of France and the world’s most important environmental problems, winning the Grand Prix at the Locarno festival this year for doing it so well! The director takes us on a trip to central France, Burgundy and the Vosges Mountains, telling an eye-opening story of tree deserts, monoculture, pesticides, profitability, and social injustice. This screening will be preceded by an introduction from the association Coeur de Forêt ❤️🌳
• THE MOVIE:
From Limousin to Landes, from Morvan to Vosges, French forests are changing. These symbols of authentic and preserved nature are undergoing an unprecedented industrialization phase. Heavy mechanization, monoculture, fertilizers and pesticides: the handling of forests is rapidly following that of intensive farming. Le Temps des forêts is a journey to the heart of industrial forestry and its alternatives. Living forest or green desert: today’s choices will create tomorrow’s landscape.
These pictures are not from faraway Canada or China, they are from our neighbouring country, France. This film is a discovery because it tells a story about the forest we have not yet heard and seen. – Brigitte Häring, Locarno Film Festival
