The Boy and the Tree

Postby jarkko » Sun Dec 25, 2016 1:03 am

Mr. Panagiotis Rappas, our important contact on Hydra sent us his holiday wishes and this link to one of his animation films: ...

Mr Rappas is a film maker through his company Rappasfilm, and also is in charge of the cultural affairs on the island - he organized the wonderful tribute night in 2015 during our meet up.
A tender fairy tale centered on the friendship between a withering and forlorn tree on the sidewalk and a homeless little boy. The film touches in a heartwarming, humane manner issues such as: "Desolation", "Abandonment", "Loneliness", "The Urban Landscape as source of social isolation", "Nature and how we choose to disregard it" and "Basic survival needs such as hunger and shelter, for all those living on the margins of a society we take for granted".
Based on the original story by Eugene Trivizas
Adapted for the screen by Eugene Trivizas and Panagiotis Rappas
Directed by Panagiotis Rappas
Music by Dimitris Papadimitriou
