Movie Thursday - Movie Thursday : Documentary

Documentary directed by Luc Jacquet, 2013, France (1h20)


The film shows how tropical forests were created in the space of seven centuries and how they live, from the first shoots to the interactions between vegetation and animals.

The documentary opens with a tracking shot that starts from a detail at the bottom of a tree and ends with a view of the canopy where the botanist Francis Hallé is installed. The latter, through the forests of Gabon and Peru, goes to meet a wide variety of plant species such as moabi, strangler fig or passive lianas.
