Taiga

Leena Lehti

Elegy to the boreal forest. With the warming climate, the borders of different life zones move towards the North, and the conifer as we know it is changing and disappearing. Taiga is made on 16mm film without camera. It combines hand scratched animation with real tiny plants and moss collected in subarctic region in Finland.
