Perhaps nature's greatest paradox is that it is both ordered and chaotic. This represents the core reason why man cannot predict nature. Given its complexity, it's understandable we're not flooded with more overt narrative film references on the subject. Instead, nature remains veiled in metaphor, rarely uttered or connected directly to the film's plot. Instead, documentaries have been doing the heavier lifting in terms of investigating the world's behaviour 🌎
Antonio Pesce is one of those doc filmmakers aiming to tell the planet's story. After graduating in visual arts, he directed the beautifully shot 'Life Evolution Ecology - Genesys', which is now in competition for the Best Documentary of November at the LFA!
