Landshaft sketches the psychogeography of a geopolitically charged landscape and its inhabitants between extractivism, war and displacement.

In the form of a journey in eastern Armenia, the film follows human and non-human actors as they make their way through the landscape, from Lake Sevan to the Sotk gold mine, occupied by Azerbaijan since the Karabakh War in 2020
