The Man Who Planted Trees (DVD)The Man Who Planted Trees (DVD)
This film is no longer available through The Video Project. Please contact the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for additional information on availability.

Heralded as "a masterpiece of animated art," this timeless film tells the inspirational story of a solitary shepherd who patiently plants and nurtures a forest of thousands of trees, single-handedly transforming his arid surroundings into a thriving oasis.

Undeterred by two World Wars, and without any thought of personal reward, the shepherd tirelessly sows his seeds and acorns with the greatest care. As if by magic, a landscape that seemed condemned grows green again. A film of great beauty and hope, this story is a remarkable parable for all ages and an inspiring testament to the power of one person.



Also available as part of a 4 disc boxed set including all 9 of Frederick Back's animated films and special features.
