THE TREE INSIDE

DIRECTOR: MICHELLE KIM, ROB LEICKNER - BRITISH COLUMBIA (VANCOUVER, B.C.)

 

(NAR) Myra is a woman who can’t maintain a relationship with anyone longer than a couple of months—aside from a famous author (played by famed Canadian author Michael Turner.) When Myra meets the charming David, potentially the man of her dreams, she still must fight the impulse to keep looking. Shot over the course of a year, Vancouver’s exquisite seasonal landscape subtly mirrors Myra’s turbulent emotional life. With a soundtrack highlighting music from Canada, the US, Iceland and Belgium, the film also includes a wondrous dance performance by Barbara Bourget of Kokoro Dance.
