Reise zum Wald

Journey to the forest
by Jirn Staeger Experimental Germania/Germany 2008 7'

Starting from an urban perspective in which trees break the regular geometry of streets and buildings, Staeger's camera, in a rapid flight like that of a horde of bees, enters between the rows of monoculture crops, where the landscape is fashioned by man, then into pristine forests, whose thick canopy appears as strikingly majestic as it is vulnerable to the threat of deforestation. A poetic tribute to the forest, one of the fundamental myths of Germanic culture.
