May We Grow (2013)
23min · Documentary, Short, Drama · 1 May 2013
Two majestic100-year-old elms stand sentinel at 10 Ruby Street. Their limbs spread to meet the tree canopy on every side. Roots reach out and down. 10 Ruby belongs to the elms - the whole street does - and, as we discover in this film, we belong to the trees. May We Grow is a stirring journey into awakening, through the eyes and heart of the film-maker, following the illness and removal of one of the elms. A bond builds with the remaining elm tree, whose fate is uncertain. The film explores being alive and the inevitability of dying, takes your heart up into the canopy, and your understanding down into the tree roots. Original music by acclaimed singer-songwriters Christine Fellows and John K. Samson.
