Film Synopsis: The Time of Forests

Director: François-Xavier Drouet | Countries of production: France | Year: 2018 | Length: 103 min
Language: French with English subtitles | Age: 8+ years

A living forest or a green desert? Tomorrow’s landscape will be defined by the choices we make today.

As the symbol of authentic, wild nature, forests across Europe are undergoing an unprecedented phase of industrialisation. Changing forest management practices, intensive agricultural models and privatisation – supported by heavy mechanisation, monoculture, fertilisers and pesticides – are compounded by a loss of traditional know-how.

Through interviews with rangers, forestry commission officials, sawmill operators and land rights campaigners in France, The Time of Forests invites the viewer on a journey to the heart of industrial forestry – and its alternatives.
