Five years in the making, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees is a stunningly photographed love letter to the forest. At a recent screening in California the film was greeted with a standing ovation. The audience was moved to tears by the story of how our forests are disappearing around the world. Acclaimed author and scientist Diana Beresford-Kroeger (The Sweetness of a Simple Life and The Global Forest) tours some of the earth’s last great forests in Japan, Ireland, Germany, the United States and Canada and speaks about their endangerment and what we can do about it.
