Salvaged archive footage from Congo's National Film Archives meets 20th-century Italian poetry in this short experimental film.
Through Giovanni Pascoli's poem 
The Fallen Oak, this short film explores the increasingly fraught relationship between man and nature, and the impact of the first on the latter. As mankind's unrelenting exploitation of resources is destroying the environment, leaving the world bare and barren, 1970s images hailing industrial agriculture ingenuity and benefits lay exposed and ruined, like its consequences.
