The Forest and the Man (1966)

Original title: Mets ja inimene

Digitally remastered in 2012

Documentary Duration 14:38

For a long time, the forest was more powerful than a human being. The forest was independent and autonomous. Things have changed. The filmmakers observe the forest warden doing his job in the forest with love and care. He answers the questions asked by Fred Jüssi, contemplates on the connections between the men and environment and explains human responsibility for taking care of the forest that is highly valuable. The forest warden considers himself as a part of the big chain called nature protection.
