How does it feel to live next to 170 year old creatures? This short impressionistic film documents an old forest area called Mortin männikkö in Rovaniemi, Northern Finland. As an array of glimpses and moments the film tries to summarise a decade of life next to this vivid & forested tableau vivant.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.

– Christina Rossetti, 1872 –
