“Official Selected 2019” Hambachers
Hambach, a millenary forest in Germany, is the setting for a unique experiment in environmental resistance that opposed to the bulldozers of RWE, the company that would like to reduce the forest to the umpteenth basin extractive for coal from the top of the houses and villages suspended on the trees. Hambachers is the emotional journey through images and sounds to discover the spartan and romantic utopia of the community of militants that has been living in the forest since 2012, between moments of struggle and experimentation with new models of coexistence and that has now been elevated to a symbol by the ecological movements from half of Europe.
