This is a special one-night-only screening.
Join us for a spectacular visual feast showcasing the interconnectedness forests! Trees are some of the planet’s oldest communities, but only recently have scientists begun to understand how they function together as a macro-organism. Are there better forestry practices than treating trees as isolated, replaceable individuals? Or do they live a shared life deeper than we know? In this documentary, Peter Wohlleben takes us through the beautiful German beech forest in his care to illustrate the message of his monumental book, The Hidden Life of Trees.
After the film, Heartwood Eco-Poetry & Performance will showcase some of our artists and share ways you can be involved in the life of Phoenixville trees.
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.
