Why are film and botanical archives considered important and what connects them? The answer lies in their role in preserving the world's memories, which become significant cultural and artistic heritage.

Shot on 16 mm film, the documentary follows the process of archiving flora and film strips, the lifespan of which shortens if not preserved properly. Many herbariums include specimens of plants that no longer exist. Film medium is no different. If it is not properly stored in film archives, much of our world heritage of cinematography is lost.
