Ghost Trees

A scientist having lost his wife to cancer finds his work on Kauri dieback symptomatic of a deeper malaise; species extinction, climate change, increasing isolation and a diminished sense of identity, play heavily with his mental stability. Unable to move forward, he is caught at the intersection of multiple realities; a strangely poetic place, outside of linear time, where matter meets spirit and research melds with conversations with the departed, and the large kauri that surround the property.

Ghost Trees draws on science, memory, imagination, history and the indefatigable love for things lost and so very nearly close to extinction.
