Selection of the month: The call of the woods

In the middle of our life's journey, I found myself in a dark forest

- The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri

This May, take a walk in the woods with LaCinetek!

The realm of fairy tales and marvellous worlds, the forest, by turns ominous and protective, is the quintessential place of ambivalence. A place of initiation or inner transformation, constantly at the frontier between two worlds, the forest is the perfect setting for all kinds of journeys, whether realistic, introspective or imaginary. Ten films to listen to its murmurs and whispers, to meet the living beings and spirits that inhabit it, to escape and find refuge.
