A meditative and virtuosic ‘slow road movie’ by Swiss artist Daniel Zimmermann, exploring human impact on the environment through a series of elegantly composed 360-degree tableaux.

A fir tree is felled in Austria and its transportation across the world to the Brazilian rainforest is documented in a series of 13 slow-panning 360-degree shots, composed by Swiss artist and documentarian Zimmermann and cinematographer Gerald Kerkletz. The unhurried and precisely choreographed landscape pans allow the viewer time to contemplate the impact of industrialisation on the natural world, as the camera catches the tiniest details of the logged timber’s seemingly senseless journey from a European forest to the verdant jungles of South America. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Karlovy Vary Film Festival, Walden is an exquisitely shot rumination on the exploitation of nature that deserves to be seen on as large a screen as possible.
