Forest Chants

Émilie Monnet + Waira Nina

In the forest of Nigamon/Tunai, artists Émilie Monnet and Waira Nina share their radical love for trees and woods and literally tune into their frequencies. In a discussion with their expert collaborators, they address the threats to the forests, from the Amazon to the boreal one, and invite us to listen to their inhabitants.
