Call of the Forest
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Holland Theatre is proud to partner with the Bellefontaine Shade Tree Commission to bring this stunning film to Bellefontaine. The documentary follows visionary scientist, conservationist and author, Diana Beresford-Kroeger, on her journey to the most beautiful forests of the northern hemisphere. From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan, the ancient Raheen Wood of Ireland, the walnut and redwood trees of America, to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger tells us the amazing stories behind the history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.
“CALL OF THE FOREST is a film of rare significance. It draws the viewer into the green world that sustains life on this planet at a crucial ecological point, and is an introduction to the work of Diana Beresford-Kroeger, one of the least known but most important people on the planet.”-Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning author.
