This magical pilgrimage from the director of March of the Penguins transports you body and soul into rainforest canopies in the Amazon and Africa to celebrate some of the untold wonders of trees.

In a tropical forest 200 feet above the ground, botanist Francis Hallé makes intricate drawings of all he surveys. His images then come alive in Oscar-winning director Luc Jacquet’s sensory spectacular, using innovative, soaring cinematography techniques to illustrate how trees communicate, co-operate and fight for their lives. Drawing on vast research and knowledge, Jacquet and Hallé lead viewers on a journey into the depths of the tropical jungle.
