The Ancient Woods

Filmed in one of the last remaining patches of the oldest forests in Lithuania, this poetic and atypical nature film depicts a place where boundaries of time melt and everything that exists does not wither or age but “grows into” eternity. Take a journey from the forest thickets to the wolves’ caves and up to the black stork’s nest, and down to the depths of the underwater forest — and, finally, to the human beings on the wood’s edge. There is no commentary, only rich, almost palpable sounds of the forest and magical situations captured by the camera.
