FRANCE – PRANCŪZIJA
Dokumentinis,trukmė: 55:10

By their sheer size and original shapes, baobabs are among the most remarkable trees on the planet. Relatively unknown in Madagascar, these giants are currently threatened by deforestation. To study them, in the heart of their forests, Cyrille Cornu and Wilfried Ramahafaly travel by pirogue, exploring 400 km of wild and isolated coastline in the south-west of Madagascar.

Director: Cyrille Cornu

Cyrille Cornu was born at Bourges, France in 1968. He has been doing ecological research for over 15 years. His work has led him to travel to many countries. He studies tropical dry forests and uses satellite images to characterize their biodiversity, degree of deforestation and the impacts of climate changes. For the last 6 years, he has focused on the baobabs of Madagascar, and has become one of the world’s leading specialists. Each year, he organizes unique expeditions that use local traditional transport to access the heart of isolated forests that are home to the baobabs.

The island of Madagascar is a great source of inspiration for filmmakers and photographers. It is unique in many ways. Its biodiversity and landscapes are exceptional, and the social diversity is remarkable. Cyrille has been a keen photographer for many years but with “Baobabs between Earth and Sea”, his first documentary film, he has evolved to another level. The desire to share his adventures is at the heart of his approach to filming, sharing his travels through the nature and the encounters with the people living in wild regions.

The story of his first film is intimately related to traveling. Content and form are changing to the rhythm of different discoveries, a desire to place the viewer at the very heart of the voyage.

Since the beginning of modern cinema, viewers and critics alike have been transfixed by light contrasted with darkness. This interplay of light and dark was typical of film noir, a metaphor of good and evil in plots that featured crime, detectives, and mystery. We celebrate this genre through a salute to Augustin-Jean Fresnel, the inventor of a lens for lighthouses that was later used for movie and theatre lighting. Light Years features serial murder and a star-studded group of suspects over a half-century of film. Whodunnit? Ultimately, we learn that the Fatal Fresnel Lens has incinerated five cameras that recorded their own demise.
