ABOUT THE FOREST, 2021. Documentary 97 min.

Swedish forestry has a saying: "For every tree that is felled, we plant two new ones". But how sustainable is our forestry? Today, more than 90% of our primeval forests and wildernesses have been transformed into tree plantations, and the last remnants of unprotected forest continue to be felled. Are "freedom under responsibility" and "public interest" sufficient protection to safeguard biodiversity and a living climate?
