from the director

If the Trees Heard Us started with an assortment of various ideas, central of which was the enigmatic quality that can come with one’s individual healing process. Inspired by the vast emptiness of North Dakota’s landscapes, this film strives to evoke the loneliness of rehashed memory, while also recognizing the harsher, uncertain possibility that come when one tries to move forward.
