In the Ecuadorian Amazon, researcher and eco-acoustic composer David Monacchi (also the film's writer) seeks to capture incredibly detailed 3D soundscapes as vital documents of a rain forest with among the highest biodiversities in the world. This is film as immersive auditory travelogue, seeking the voices of species whose calls may all too soon fall silent due to habitat loss and other anthropocene effects.
The film is a very special sound experience, especially in the cinema, and the elaboration with this new technology to register biodiversity on the basis of its sounds and thus protect it is a very unique affair.
