Neither Sudden nor Unexpected

The Condition of the Black Forest

What has become of ‘forest death’? At the beginning of the eighties everyone was talking about it – In ten years the Black Forest will be gone forever. Catastrophic scenarios and gloomy prophecies were coming fast and thick. Ten years later things have calmed down about the dying forest. What became of the Cassandra cries? What do the past prophets say today? Has the forest been saved? A film about today’s forest, but also about the media.
