Lament of the Sugar Bush Man

Rhonda Abrams

1987, 11:39 minutes, colour, English


Sulfur dioxide and acidic precipitation have added stress to the forest ecosystem and is the unofficial cause of the decline of the Sugar Maple. This is the lamentation of a world slipping away. A farm here, a person there.
