The Ancient Woods

Biodiversity in the ancient woods gets a new breath of life in a unique, dialogue-free film developed in collaboration with biologists.

The diversity of wildlife has gradually become invisible for us in the industrialised landscapes that surround the cities where most people live today. All the more reason to let yourself be astonished and amazed by the abundance of life in a film that was developed in collaboration with biologists and which – without commentaries or other human interference – brings us all the way down into the soil of a Baltic forest. A scientifically founded and cinematically unique experience reminiscent of the works of Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab. The black grouse's mating fight is an unprecedented drama of life and death in Mindaugas Survila's research-based study of the most rare species of the Baltic forests. 'The Ancient Woods' is an ode to the forest as both a habitat and a fantasy.
