Hidden Trees celebrates life stories of members from the oldest generation in Europe. In front of a camera, the interviewees tell about love, death, violence and reconciliation. And about the little things, that got already forgotten in the rush.


The past, the present and what is in between gets intertwined in a new story with contemporary dance, (live) music and film on stage.
