A new com­mu­ni­ty has emer­ged, thir­ty met­res abo­ve the ground in the tree­tops of the Hambach Forest. In 2018, this site beco­mes the focus of cli­ma­te poli­cy dis­pu­tes in Germany on account of a group of peo­p­le who have got invol­ved by living in self-built tree hou­ses in a bid to pre­vent the threa­ten­ed cle­arance of the forest. Film stu­dent Steffen Meyn docu­men­ted the­se acti­vists’ part­ly peaceful, part­ly radi­cal, part­ly aggres­si­ve strugg­le against the des­truc­tion of natu­re over a peri­od of two years with a 360-degree hel­met came­ra. But then he fell from a tree during a poli­ce evic­tion and died.
This docu­men­ta­ry by Meyn’s fri­ends and fel­low stu­dents Fabiana Fragale, Kilian Kuhlendahl and Jens Mühlhoff is based on his foo­ta­ge. In their film, the protagonist’s doubts come across just as cle­ar­ly as does his fri­end­ly per­se­ver­ance and his efforts to cope with the more mili­tant aspects of the move­ment. In addi­ti­on, the direc­tors con­duc­ted inter­views with acti­vists on whom the expe­ri­en­ces in “Hambi” have left their mark. How far, they ask, does acti­vism need to go? And how far should it go?
