Anna-Maria Dutoit / Germany, Portugal / 2023 / 8 min / Colour

Italian premiere

Long is the life of a mountain landscape that changes over time. At the bottom of the ocean, tectonic plates collide and peaks soar upwards. When the snow accumulates and compacts glaciers form, which dominate these peaks for many years -- millions and millions of years -- until the human species arrives. And the story it brings with it is anything but reassuring. The ghosts of olive groves after forest fires, the plastic waste thrown in the middle of nature, the now extinct frogs in the Costa Rican rainforest. The scorching heat makes its way between the towering towers of waste, while the glacial formations retreat inexorably, revealing the scars of the past. Earth, the now old and tired directly-interested party, is perhaps the only one to have a say on environmental disasters and the effects of climate change, and she tells us about them in the first person.
