Baobabs between Land and Sea (56 mn)
By their sheer size and original shapes, baobabs are among the most remarkable trees on the planet. Relatively unknown in Madagascar, these giants are currently threatened by deforestation. To study them, in the heart of their forests, Cyrille Cornu and Wilfried Ramahafaly travel by pirogue, exploring 400 km of wild and isolated coastline in the southwest of Madagascar.
The film chronicles the expedition. It reveals discoveries, encounters and scientific results of the two explorers, baobabs and landscapes that had mostly never been filmed or even photographed.
