Who takes care of the invisible?
A documentary production about landscape poisoning and a good farmer, based on the interviews with entomologists, philosophers, beekeepers and bark beetle fighters. Suggestive stories of people and landscapes that have lost continuous care. Our country does not thrive. A good farmer is legislatively accountable only to the economics of sufficient yield. The tragedy of the bumblebees almost resembles an ancient drama but we should be worried first and foremost about ourselves. When was the last time you cleaned the bug-ridden windshield of your car? We cross the boundaries, we are surrounded both by metaphorical and very tangible poison, we make fatal choices between two paths every day. Our landscape: rapeseed fields and spruce forests. It’s green and yellow; it’s as simple as the principle of a computer soul.
