Wakefield Doc Fest presents: The Ancient Woods

January 9, 2019

Saturday February 2, 4pm & Sunday February 3, 4pm at Centre Wakefield La Pêche


Filmed in one of the last patches of old growth forest in Lithuania, THE ANCIENT WOODS is a place where time melts and nothing withers nor ages but 'grows into' eternity. This poetic, mesmerizing and atypical nature film takes its viewers on an endless journey – from forest thickets to wolves’ caves and a black stork’s nest, then deep into water to the underwater forest, returning after to the human inhabiting the woodland's edge. No commentary, no narrative, no music, only deep, rich forest sounds and seemingly magical situations. The result? Almost a fantasy tale in wild wood, which gently erases the line separating human and other lives. Incredible sound and cinematography. Premiered at IDFA; many awards for best documentary, best sound, and cinematography.
