Description

An unusual, fascinating documentary shot almost entirely in reverse. Boards are transformed into logs, as the operation of a modern sawmill is examined from end to beginning! At the same time, a highly innovative soundtrack combines music and the sound of machines with the humorous, insightful commentary of the workers.
