Documentary by Valeriy Lovchinovskiy «WHERE HAS THE FOREST GONE? IT WAS STILL HERE YESTERDAY!»
The film has been made for the foreign companies that came into the Ukrainian market after Ukraine had started to conduct industrial fellings in its forests and had caught up with the world leading timber exporters.
But destroying of the Ukrainian forests started earlier and now we are coming to the end. It is amazing that the companies dealing in the timber market want to increase the purchasing of our raw material, but disguise their real motives with nature preservation slogans.
When You pick mushrooms or just relax with Your family in the forest, You have no doubts that the forest will always be there, that Your children will be able to enjoy it with their children.
However, a little group of clerks consider the forest as their own rightful property. They violate the laws and destroy the forests of Ukraine with the aim of increasing their personal profit and well-being. Their greed has really no limits. I want to show You the real picture of things happening in our forests, so that You wouldn't be surprised: one day You might come to the forest, but it would be simply gone.
