The Forest In Me
Feature Documentary currently in production / 2021
A mother makes a film for her child as a gift. She shares stories of people cut off from the world to examine how they might stay connected: A seventy-six-year-old woman survives in remote seclusion in the vast Siberian forest; a crew live isolated in a hi-tech pod on a volcano as a simulation of life on Mars; footage of the child’s life shows him exploring the world for the first time.
The Forest in Me is a highly sensory film with startling contrasts and uncanny connections about the experience of time from three perspectives, and a chance to consider the timeless, driving forces behind the evolution of technology that come from small, everyday needs and desires.
