Description:
This work of videoart is a way to manifest the similar situation of vulnerability of humans in face of altered environments in different parts of the world. The images was recorded in Assaré, located in the dry backwood of Ceará, and in Nantan-shi, countryside of Kyoto, Japan. 
The Assaré region was completely transformed by drought, and the subsistence of the families who were living in this woods became impossible. Most of them migrated to the southwest to work as underemployed, upon the governs encouragement. Among them, my grandfather, who became a bricklayer, and my grandmother, who was hit by a car a few months after arriving in São Paulo.
The forest of Nantan-shi village is covered by foreign pine, which was brought after the destruction of the native forest during World War II. This fact unfeasible the growth and collection of native Matsutake mushroom, which was the basis of the local economy. The region’s subsistence base became the cultivation and trade of rice, maintained by small family nuclei who uses toxic fertilizers.
