AWL_022 SAUVAGERIE

Sauvagerie was filmed in Pará, the second largest state of Brazil, which was almost entirely covered with rain forest 40 years ago. Today only a few spots of green remain: some residues of the primary forest and several abandoned gardens in the suburbs of the big cities, like its capital Belém. This is the arena in which filmmakers Jonathan le Fourn and Rémi de Gaalon investigate their romantic assumptions of what contemporary savagery looks like. Stories of the forest and the city are vigorously juxtaposed, constructing a dark new mythology in which its inhabitants become successively the master and the prisoner of their surroundings.
