In Forest For The Trees, a war photographer embeds herself in a community of Canadian tree planters who overcome gruelling conditions and emotional difficulties to bring back the forest they love.
This visually and artistically unique documentary explores the physical and emotional aspects of a community of Canadian west coast tree planters. Deftly weaving together still photos and film footage, Rita Leistner, an award-winning photographer, photojournalist, filmmaker and erstwhile tree planter, depicts the contradictions in the experiences of the tree planters – the hardship and the healing; the solitude and the joy of belonging – creating an eloquent cinematic metaphor for the human condition. Finding common cause, self-knowledge and meaning in their formidable task, the tree planters restore themselves and each other in the process of restoring the environment.
English Language with some French Subtitles.
Presented in Partnership with South Lakes Action on Climate Change: Towards Transition (SLACCtt)
