In his project “Fragments of Extinction”, composer and researcher David Monacchi explores the landscape of the Amazon rainforest using audio recordings. The audiovisual symbiosis of natural still-lifes and three-dimensional audio landscapes makes his calls for preserving local biodiversity all the more believable and urgent.


Nika Saravanja (1985) and Alessandro dʼEmilia (1988) are students of documentary film at the Zelig film school in Bolzano. Besides documentary film, they also share an interest in travel and environmental issues.
