Gentle birdsong filters through dense forest vegetation only to be drowned out by the sudden roar of chainsaws. Thus begins a documentary comprising a mere thirteen 360° panning shots that gradually reveal the environments of carefully selected sites. The uncompromising formal concept places great demands on the patient viewer. But as soon as we align our breathing with the slow rhythm of the shots and allow the weight of time to do its work, a surprising odyssey opens out before us of the paradoxical migration of wood from Austrian forests to a secret, far-off destination - a gently ironic reference to the renowned work of Henry David Thoreau.
