Romania has the most unique biodiversity and virgin ecosystem in Europe. However, its forests are threatened by illegal deforestation and a lack of conservation awareness.

Romania is the last country of Europe dealing with existing Virgin Forests. This treasure is not even known and understood by most of its people.

We had the chance to meet an uncountless number of people and smiles while explaining our project and asking permission to capture images. 

The corruption is still very present in Romania and the wood industry took advantage of the public lands and propertities at the end of Communism. 

Our aim is to inspire change. To encourage conservation and good actions for all forms of life. To collaborate with passionate people, with hard-working leaders that want to make of this world a better place.

We want to take advantage of the power of storytelling and filmmaking to raise awareness about the importance of their conservation. 

But also;

♥ Remind the romanian people themselves the beauty of their territory, the abundance of cultural and natural treasures and the power they have in their hands in order to keep this unique habitat alive for their children.

♥ Show the European people the luck and duty they got. Europe is a country of wonders and dreams. Our differences are our biggest strenght. We must open the eyes about what it is to be saved and protected right now.

♥ In the largest scale, show to the world one exemple of mission we must all focus on, coming back to realise the gratitude we got for Nature itself. By taking our viewers to unique corners of this country, we want to rescue an ancient human-nature relationship.

A connection that, today, seems to be lost.

Virgin forests — also known as old-growth, primeval, or even ancient woodlands— have the distinction of being very old and nearly untouched by humans. They are rare, in that much of our world’s forests have been razed one or even several times. Virgin forests exhibit unique ecological features such as species richness, wilderness, conservation value, and resilience.
