Joey here, reporting in for this week’s ‘Author in residence’ to bring to you some awesome stuff that I find interesting to share and or be of help towards your studies.
To start things off, I thought I’d share this trailer from Tant de Forêts, a short film by French directors Burcu Sankur and Geoffrey Godet focusing on deforestation. Starting off as a simple and vibrant happy world, the world suddenly becomes dark and intriguing.

The film is based on a poem by French writer Jacques Prévert. According to the directors:
‘Speaks of the irony of the fact that newspapers warn us about deforestation although they are made of paper themselves.’
