The Baltic-Nordic Film Festival: The Tree Lover

The Baltic-Nordic Film Festival: The Tree Lover

Strange things occur in the woods of northern Sweden. That’s the media teaser for Swedish movie The Tree Lover set to feature at the Bright Nights: The Baltic-Nordic Film Festival tonight at Library and Archives Canada. The movie, well received by Sweden’s critics looks set to live up to its mysterious promise. In a sort of reality television show turned into high-art film, the movie consists of a film crew – consisting of three urbanized northerners – seeking to get back to their rural roots. They go back to a much loved tree house they frequented and children and so the story begins. There the tree house becomes not just any old play structure but a symbolic lost Eden – a missing connection between people and the natural world. In a movie serious and touching in the way only the Swedes seem to have managed to master, The Tree House is set to touch a universal sentiment – that there truly is  is no place like home. The Tree House along with short film Instead of Abracadabra will be screened at the Auditorium of the Library and Archives Canada tonight, Friday April 20 at 9:00pm.

More information on the film and Bright Nights: The Baltic-Nordic Film Festival is available at the Swedish Embassy website at www.swedenabroad.com. The Festival runs from April 19 to April 28, 2012.
