Film Screening + Discussion: The Time of Forests

Opening hours / Beginning:

25. February 2021

Although thought of as a symbol of authentic and intact nature, woods are currently undergoing an unprecedented period of industrialisation. Intense mechanisation, monoculture, fertilisers and pesticides, the loss of traditional knowledge, forest management — forests are rapidly coming to resemble the norm of intensive land cultivation.

The Time of Forests is a journey into the heart of industrial forest management and its alternatives. Whether the landscape of tomorrow is a living forest or a green wasteland will be determined by the decisions humans make today. A discussion with Ralf Straußberger (BUND Naturschutz in Bayern e.V.) will follow the screening.

The film will be shown in French with English subtitles and is free and open to the public, the discussion will be held in German language.
