Le pays dévasté

Emmanuel Lefrant
The Devastated Land
France 2015 / 12’

Emmanuel Lefrant’s film looks back to the geological age when humans were just starting to learn to control the powers of nature that had dominated them up to that point. Traces—chemical, consumption, and nuclear—of their existence will remain in the planet’s geological code for thousands or even millions of years. Making use of negative images, Lefrant presents an ominious picture of Earth’s future.
