EXPERIMENTAL

FRAGILE FRIENDS

In the forest of the Catholic Monastery of Admont in Austria, a fir tree is felled and processed into planks of wood. By train, truck, boat and finally by hand, the stack is transported to a mysterious destination right in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. The planks’ trajectory corresponds to one of the central, raw materials trade routes, however in reversed direction of transport. The film is a meditative and subtle comment on the absurdity of the economic rationale that underlies our globalised world.
