In a workshop with the project team from Grün Stadt Zürich, we worked out the content of the film together, sharpened the message and began to spin the story of the city forest.
During the joint visit to the forest, the district forester showed us the trees in their surroundings, explained the interrelationships in the ecosystem, and explained how it is assessed whether a tree should be removed. The young team of foresters demonstrated to us how a tree is safely felled. We took this valuable information and impressions with us and started the film production.
In the film our concern was not to limit the forest to its functions, but also to convey the fine atmospheric impressions that make up its non-measurable quality.
