The Hidden Life of Trees (Final Screening)

When Peter Wohlleben published his book “The Hidden Life of Trees” in 2015, he quickly entered bestseller lists. The forester wrote vividly about his experience that trees are able to communicate with each other, a thesis explored here.

“‘The Hidden Life of Trees’ uses the sensorial capacities of cinema to thrillingly visualize Peter Wohlleben’s observations.” (New York Times)

“A film like this, and the work it was inspired by, and the new age of understanding it encourages, is a source of hope, the knowledge imparted within indisputable and precious.” (Thrillist)

“A fascinating walk in the woods.” (National Post)

“‘The Hidden Life Of Trees’ sets out to engineer a paradigm shift in the minds of viewers. Open yourself to it and not only will you understand forests differently, you’ll never take a piece of wooden furniture for granted again.” (Eye For Film)
