  • THE TREE is a modern fable dealing with the theme of humanity versus nature. An elderly homeless person, lured by the grandeur of a beautiful tree, climbs it and claims it as his own. When he carelessly defaces its beauty, the mighty tree awakens, and the wood spirits cry out from their haunts of a thousand years. Creatively, THE TREE is an exercise in audiovisual expression exploring the use of the expressive elements of space, shape, line, light, color, tone, rhythm, movement, orientation, time, contrast/affinity, sign, symbol and archetype to create a dramatic build of intensity with an act of violence. In this case the violence is man's violence against nature.
