“This heartily engaging documentary features many miraculous forests of the earth and is hosted by the colourful Irish-Canadian nature~based scientist, dearly revered author, Diana Beresford-Kroeger. This empathically touching film journeys with Diana while investigating the profound biological and spiritual connections to forests; A worldwide adventure which explores the science, folklore, and restoration solutions of this essential eco-system.
“Diana explores the most beautiful sacred forests in the Northern Hemisphere from the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan to the great Boreal woodlands of Canada. She shares the incredible stories detailing the legacies of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the vital roles played while nurturing this realm altogether.
“Trees offer food, create medicine, and most importantly, provide life-giving oxygen, and more. Without trees transforming carbon dioxide, the living breathable atmosphere of earth and every living body would be dramatically impacted. Trees are in fact one of the most important living organisms on earth, chemically affecting the environment substantially, playing vital roles sustaining all of life.
“Trees are quite literally an all surrounding lifeline of the planet and key dynamic catalyst to organic change among any transforming climates. At present, solely 5% of the world’s old growth native forests currently remain and this film intends to inspire new generations of continual growth among peoples, trees, and beyond. Call of the Forest is an insightful testament calling for immediate responses of action on a worldwide scale, yet at heart center, this is a story of triumph and how every being can play a part in the transitions arriving now, and to come, holistically tending to earths, and all elements as a whole: respectfully, honourably, gratefully, thankfully, lovingly!”
