In THE ANCIENT WOODS we are transported to one of Lithuania’s last remaining old-growth forests, where time seemingly stands still while flora and fauna interconnect to produce the primal pulsating rhythms of nature. Life in the woods is beautiful, brutal and fascinating, and stirs something deep within the human soul. Featuring no voice-over or contextualizing information, the stunning images and tableaus become a meditation on the circle of life. This is truly a nature documentary out of the ordinary.
