Quartet for the End of Time
Deanna Erdmann, 2012, 11 min, Video, USA

A photographic archive of a landscape in peril, Quartet For the End of Time is composed of 1,700 photographs taken by the filmmaker in the jungles of the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia. Considered to be one of the last true wilderness areas in Southeast Asia, it is the home of many endangered species. Erdmann's photographs combine to create a dynamic tapestry, a symphony of green.
