Go to see one of Canada’s newest and coolest documentaries. “We cut down billion of trees every year – Today only five percent of the world’s old growth forests remain intact. Yet trees are one of this planet’s most significant creators of food, new medicines, and oxygen. Forests hold the answers too many of the world’s problems; from climate change to human health and well-being. Visionary scientist and acclaimed author Diana Beresford-Kroeger explores the science, folklore and history of this essential eco-system reminding us that when we improve our profound human connection to woodlands we can, not only, restore our health – we can restore our planet.”

Combining documentary footage with animation, it provides a poetic perspective on childhood trauma, the nature of storytelling, the transience of life and the release of love. The screening will be followed by a talk with Judith Price, a video, performance artist and educator, who will be speaking about the film and the art of Laurie Anderson.”
