The Hidden Life of Trees
opens our eyes to the wonder, glory and intelligent complexity of our beloved woods.
When Peter Wohlleben
published his book The Hidden Life of Trees in 2015, he stormed all the bestseller charts overnight. His writings opened our eyes to the wonder, glory and intelligent complexity of our beloved woods. Now, in the documentary of the same name, Wohlleben explores and celebrates the beauty and magic of the forests, and reminds us of our need to protect them.
The whole world is talking about the environment, but frequently fails to listen to nature itself. One man has made it his mission to change this and has promptly reached millions of people.
Wohlleben uncovers the solidarity and cohesion of the trees and strikes a chord with his ever-growing community of readers. Are trees able to talk? Do they have a memory and a social life? Wohlleben gets to the bottom of these questions and opens our eyes to the enchanting world of the woods.
Director Jörg Adolph
(Parents' School) combines the exciting portrait of a man who understands the language of trees with breathtaking nature footage from the world of forests to create a documentary which is just as entertaining as it is fascinating.
The screening will be accompanied by the film: Beyond the Burning: From tragedy to transition after the summer fires.
