Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees [Documentary]



The next NoVES Movie Series Discussion event will be held this Saturday. 

This is a movie showing via Zoom followed by a discussion.  It will start

by broadcasting the movie so that we may watch it together. The documentary

itself is 45 minutes.


This movie is available to rent on Amazon Prime.  If you have already seen the movie, you may join the Zoom Meeting at around 8:00 PM to participate in the discussion.


Jim Ball suggested this movie as the fourth in an April Ecologically Themed movie series. 


IMDB includes this summary of the movie:


Trees talk, know family ties and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? German forester Peter Wohlleben ('The Hidden Life of Trees') and scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada) have been observing and investigating the communication between trees over decades. And their findings are most astounding. 'Intelligent Trees' features the main observations that are covered in Peter Wohlleben's book such as the stump that has been kept alive by it's neighboring trees, the old tree-couple that looks after each other, the Mother Trees that suckle their offspring, etc... Special about this film is, however, that it goes beyond observations and claims, but match them with the latest underlying Forest Science Research. Written by Dorcon Film


The Zoom link for the movie showing is included below along with more details about this film.  I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.
