“Eternal Forest” is a documentary film that, based on a set of statements, makes a visual, ethical, aesthetic and economic reflection on the forest, namely of importance that assumes the paper industry in Portugal and indirect impacts of this industry on the environment and communities.
The director’s vision is to provoke the rethinking of a community’s relationship with the forests, through the voices of people living in Góis (where recently happened a devastating fire), Arganil and Lousã. In addition to the film, the project includes a series of works of visual poetry, an artist book and a forest experience that can be visited here.
Entrance is free, but requires previous registration.
