27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Felippe Mussel
original title: Espectro Restauración
running time: 7 min.
synopsisMore than 30% of Brazil's Pantanal biome was affected by fires between the years 2018 and 2021 due to unscrupulous agribusiness. Felippe Mussel's experimental film consists of a sound spectrogram of these fires, from which a fragment of the Ecuadorian constitution gradually emerges, granting nature the same rights as humans.
“Nature has a right to renewal.”
