We warmly invite you to the screening of the film The Man Who Planted Trees by Frederic Back.  The film will commence at 2.00pm and be followed by afternoon tea.

An animated retelling of the classic story by Jean Giono. The richness and flavor of Jean Giono’s language along with the poetry and magic colours of Frederic Back all come together in this film. Frederic Back spent over 5 years doing the exquisite drawings for the animation.  It is the story of a solitary shepherd who patiently plants and nurtures a forest of thousands of trees transforming a barren wasteland into a thriving verdant oasis.  A film of great beauty and hope, it has a strong environmental message and reveals a powerful philosophy of life.
