LightNight: Online: PORTRAIT OF AN ORDINARY TREE
Times: 17:00 - 23:30
On an ordinary street in Liverpool 8, sit many ordinary trees. This is a short film about one tree in particular. A tree that sits next to filmmaker Daniel Draper’s flat.
Pre lockdown, the tree was never given much thought; but with people’s worlds being confined to single spaces, Daniel set out to create a portrait of something ever present, often overlooked and undervalued.
Daniel also saw this as an opportunity to ‘play out’ as a filmaker, freeing his camera and his work, finding time to examine a perfectly ordinary tree that sits outside of his home. Normally too busy to think about or make a film like this, Daniel used this opportunity to enjoy the creative playful experience of celebrating the tree sat on his doorstep.
Audience: Specifically aimed at adults but is family friendly
