The ‘mangals’ like most wetlands are misunderstood spaces. Often associated with wasteland, odour and fear. These forest that straddle land and sea, are in fact one of the most productive and diverse systems on our planet.
A walk, wade or boat into the mangroves reveals a phenomenal range of observations, learning and live demonstrations - of physical, chemical, biological and design processes.
The film an outcome of our experimentation with using the mangroves as a classroom and a living laboratory.
