Drifting Woods
  • The Passion of Mountain, Earth and Water
Program Note This is a feature-length documentary by Pia RÖNICKE, who was invited to the 2022 Busan Biennale to present a media art piece on “forests.” Through the history of Swedish forests, the film presents a very philosophical and tantalizing portrayal of the relationship between humans and organisms living in the forest. The film also touches on the broad historical representation of forest exploitation since the start of World War II.
