Santiago Bessai is a Canadian filmmaker and documentarian. His films dwell on the affectation of people in the age of the Anthropocene. Growing up in Toronto and Montreal, he journeyed to the UK to study Ethnographic and Documentary film. His latest work returns to Canada, into the desolate sites of the logging industry, documenting the stories of the people who inhabit these spaces.
This film makes visible the sites of ecological destruction that fuel the anthropogenic machine. In a time of isolation and division, these realities persist. If they are to change they must first be understood through the eyes of those on the frontlines.
