Family Pine Tree

A poetic portrait about an isolated man, Niko, who unintentionally kills a pine tree. The analogy between Niko, who represents the last generation of his family tree, and the dead standing pine tree works complementarily. The story is told from the perspective of the dying pine tree which gives the short documentary an experimental touch. The movie was shot in Greece, on the island of Ikaria.
