Woods Grew Here Once

Ásdís Thoroddsen

The documentary Woods Once Grew Here is about forests in Iceland; the erosion of the forest, the exploitation and ultimately reforesting and rewildng of forests. The country itself would be central to the film. Scientists, foresters and farmers would tell the story. It would follow as simple a timeline as possible. It will have the pictural style of flowing and lyrical mood where wide shoots will be contrasted with macro-shots. The music will be choir singing combined with natural sounds.
