SEASONS from Jacques Perrin, the director of Winged Migration and Oceans, is a poetic chronicle of animals and their habitats over the past 15,000 years, and a natural symphony on the mysteries of the forests. Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times calls SEASONS “another testament to the breathtaking wonders of the natural world.”
Andy Lipkis is a practical visionary who has dedicated his life to healing the environment while improving the lives of individuals and communities. TreePeople has engaged over two million people in planting and caring for trees to revitalize the pollution and drought-damaged forests and watersheds of Southern California. “The timing couldn’t be better to see this film,” says Lipkis. “SEASONS is a delicious and intimate immersion with the animals, birds, and trees of the forest ecosystem that will open your heart and heal your spirit. With tens of millions of trees dying in California’s mountain and city forests, SEASONS informs us without words or politics, about the extraordinary life support system we’re losing, that we can and must come together to save.”
