Heart of an Oak

Directed by Laurent Charbonnier & Michel Seydoux

Considered the king of the forest, the oak is one of the tallest and most majestic trees in the Northern Hemisphere. For many, it symbolises power, longevity and the promise of future life.

Laurent Charbonnier and Michel Seydoux’s wordless documentary invites audiences to discover an extraordinary 210-year-old oak tree, and the flora and fauna that call it home, through a beautifully photographed, painstakingly constructed and playfully edited film which captures the story of a mighty oak through the seasons.

Heart of an Oak completely immerses the viewer into the heart of a tree, and tells stories that will both touch and surprise audiences, whether young or old, and irrespective of their ecological awareness.
