This little video just knocked my socks off. It is beautifully illustrated and oh so clear….it is based on this poem:
TANT DE FORÊTS…
Tant de forêts arrachées à la terre
Tant de forêts sacrifiées pour la pâte à papier
Des milliards de journaux
attirant annuellement l´attention des lecteurs
sur les dangers du déboisement des bois et des forêts
Jacques PRÉVERT “La pluie et le beau temps”
Éd. Gallimard, 1955
Here is the english (as translated by google translate — and decidedly a little rough…poetry and google translate I suspect are not good friends – if you can do a better translation, by all means, speak up!)
AS FOREST …
So torn earth forests
So sacrificed for pulp forests
Billions of newspapers
attracting the attention of readers annually
the dangers of deforestation woods and forests
I think you get the idea though…a trailer of a short film that is based on a French poem written in 1955 that speaks to the irony of the fact that newspapers warn us about deforestation although they are made of paper themselves…I’d love to see the film.
