Silent Friend
A film by Ildikó Enyedi


A tree standing in the middle of a botanical garden. A stranger, torn from her original habitat. She observes us. We chose to tell you three tales about Tree and about humans. About some clumsy encounters – attempts to fit the deeply different perceptions, and reach out. Or, at least, to imagine it. Our human heroes are outsiders, like Tree. They are longing for connection, like her.
