Movie: The Man Who Plants Trees

THE MAN WHO PLANTS TREES (Czech Republic / Slovak Republic, 2013, 52 min.)

This movie is part of the 2014 DC Environmental Film Festival.

Washington, D.C. Premiere. Many people think that the story about a man who plants trees is fictional. Actually, this man really exists. His name is Ernest Vunan and he lives in misty mountains in the heart of Africa. This documentary tells the inspirational story of a person who cares about the future of his country and decides to save the precious mountain rainforests in northwest Cameroon, where his Kedjom-Keku tribe lives. Join us on a journey through this African country and learn how one individual can change the face of the Earth. Meet a group of young people from the Czech Republic and Slovakia who decided to help Ernest in his efforts and contribute to the conservation of nature. Directed by Michal Gálik.

To reserve a seat please email [masked] and put EFF in the subject line.

We will be having dinner at Epicurean restaurant near Van Ness metro before the event around 5.30pm.
