Trees can talk

Based on Peter Wohlleben’s international bestseller, this eye-opening documentary explores the secret world of trees. With Wohlleben as our guide, we journey deep into vast German forests to study the ways in which trees communicate and take care of each other. By mapping these hidden networks and relationships, Wohlleben gives us a better understanding of the vegetable world – and perhaps also some ideas of how to structure our own society. After watching THE HIDDEN LIFE OF TREES, you’ll never look at a tree the same way again.
