"Broken Spectre" (2022) is a dreamlike immersive video artwork by visual artist Richard Mosse that forms an extensive record of widespread yet unseen fronts of deforestation and industrialized ecocide in the Amazon, unveiled using a range of powerful scientific imaging technologies, at the tipping point of this crucial ecosystem's erasure.

Through abrupt leaps in scale and medium, the film reveals unsustainable processes of extractive violence: illegal logging, mass burning, wildcat goldmining, the theft of Indigenous lands, species extinction, flooding and damming of rivers, and the forest's colonization for encroaching monoculture plantations and vast intensive cattle farms.

"Ultimately "Broken Spectre" is a work that is able to present a crisis of global magnitude in a way that allows you to be swept up, then jolted back to harsh reality. For all the awe its technical mastery inspires, you also never lose sight of the terrible truth the film reveals." -SF Chronicle

"At 74 minutes, projected across four channels with 12.2 surround sound, 'Broken Spectre' carries the weight of its subject. In what Mosse calls 'the no man's land between contemporary art and photojournalism,' the film offers perspectives on the deforestation crisis at the macro, micro and human scales." -SF Examiner

74 minutes and 11 seconds, four-channel 4K video with 12.2 surround sound. 15,360 x 2,160 overall video projection resolution. Produced in Brazil and Ecuador.

Co-presented by Minnesota Street Project Foundation, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Altman Siegel.
