Video: One Tree, One Year

.

A year-long observation reveals the secret life of a tree and its animal visitors.

An inspired filmmaking experiment, One Tree, One Year observes a year in the life of a beech tree in Italy’s National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. Filmed continuously through the changing seasons, the short documentary glimpses several species – including wild boar, Italian wolves and Marsican brown bears – passing by and interacting with the tree in a variety of ways, unaware of the camera. The result is a simple yet enchanting rejoinder to sensationalised nature filmmaking, and a marvellous distillation of the incredible complexity of ecosystems.

Directors: Bruno D’Amicis, Umberto Esposito

    That tree is a preacher; and at 2:00 we have a Ballo moment (as in, Jungle Book)!
