The documentary love story for the forest “The Ancient Woods” focuses on the inhabitants of an old growth forest – birds, animals as well as elderly people living nearby. The film will guide its viewer through the dense woods, wolf holes, up to an eagles' nest, down to the un- derwater forest, sunk thousands of years ago and back to the man's home. In the man’s house the time is “human”: days and hours seem to be on pause. Yet is it easy for a man to obey the flow of the nature, undividable into hours and minutes? Or does the growing old become his essence? There's no commentary, only the rich, almost palpable sounds of the forest and the magical situations captured by the camera.
