The synchronised video projection FOREST LAW concentrates on the consequences of oil production and mining in the very biodiverse Ecuadorian Amazon. Through interviews and filmic documentation, the question is raised whether a biosphere such as Amazonia should be granted its own rights when confronted with exploitation through human forces. >>

“Taken together, the collection of personal testimonies and factual evidence presented here expose the multiple dimensions of the tropical forest as a physical, legal, and cosmological entity.” (Ursula Biemann) >>
