Isaac KING[Canada]


A dead tree goes viral, attracting wildlife, a nature lover, and a crowd of online followers. Shot entirely outdoors, the stop-motion animation explores our relationship with nature in the age of social media, screens, and selfies. Are they concerned, indifferent, or exploitative? The film highlights people’s attitudes toward nature.
