When Peter Wohlleben published his book “The Hidden Life of Trees” in 2015, he stormed all the bestseller charts overnight: no- one had ever written about the German woods like the forester from the parish of Wershofen before. Peter Wohlleben opened our eyes to the hidden world of the forest and the "Wood Wide Web". Wohlleben tells us in an entertaining and enlightening fashion about the solidarity and cohesion of the trees: he brings us closer to these astounding living entities in guided tours of the woods and readings. Director Jörg Adolph combines the exciting portrait of a man who understands the language of trees with breathtaking nature footage from the world of forests to create a documentary which is just as entertaining as it is fascinating.
