INTERACTIONS is ART for The World’s new anthology film production with original short stories questioning biodiversity, conservation of nature, deforestation, ecosystem, environment, health, marine life, species extinction, water and more. In this era in which man tends to influence nature beyond his own awareness, there is the need to rediscover the relationships that can strengthen and deepen the bond between nature, the animal world and the human being. Twelve internationally renowned directors investigate these relationships, questioning issues ranging from the spread of animal life to the conservation of the ecosystem, through deforestation and the preservation of marine life.
REFUGIA is one of the twelve short-movies.
Refugia poetically recounts the science of environmental habitats that for millennia facilitated the survival of organisms and tells us how today, in these times of transition, their protection is key for the future. The film takes place in Japan, in the mystical island of Yakushima, where ancestral forests contain some of the world’s oldest living trees.
