In 2016 Polish Government authorised an intensive nearly three-fold increase in logging operations in Białowieża Forest region, Poland’s only natural UNESCO heritage and the last remaining primeval forest on the European lowland. Minister of the Environment quoted various excuses as the reason for it. This decision has resulted in a lot of socio-political tension. FOREST is a documentary exploring the conflict based around the logging of the Białowieża Forest, its consequences and prospects for the resolution. The film also documents brave and influential actions of the activists from all around Poland and abroad in attempt to save this precious wilderness.
