Nature: All Rights Reserved

A film by: Sebastian Mulder

Artificial grass on the balcony, a meeting hall with a forest wallpaper, a palm beach in the waiting room of the dentist. This short documentary examines the role of nature simulations in our society. To what extent does artificial nature satisfies the city dwellers and where are this simulations still falling short? Will artificial nature ever replace real nature?
