The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Romania’s woods are being illegally deforested; the situation in Russian and Peru is also dismal. The non-profit organization Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), is on the trail of the schemes. First and foremost, Alexander von Bismarck, former U.S.-Marine, who goes undercover to investigate profiteers and major concerns. WOOD, by Monica Lazurean-Gorgan, Michaela Kirst, and Ebba Sinzinger is an environmental thriller that’s chasing down the chainsaws.
