about

This music was created for the short documentary "10,000 Trees". You can support the film by following the link below. You can also support the music by downloading it here for whatever price you would like.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Ten years ago, Victor Kaufmann purchased a plot of land in Lyle, WA and realized that something was missing: trees. Fascinated by all things living, Victor finds it hard to imagine that human beings are ravenously plundering and trashing such a miraculous Earth to a degree that may soon leave it incapable of supporting life. In a letter to his granddaughter, he writes, “If my small effort should move us a nanometer back from that end, I would be gratified.”

10,000 Trees is the story of Victor actualizing his vision and finding fulfillment, eighty-five years young. Despite the physical hurdles that accompany age, Victor embraces both the spring season and life itself as he prepares to plant his 10,000th and final seedling. It doesn’t bother Victor to know his age will prevent him from witnessing his trees become a grand forest. Instead he sees himself as “a friendly observer as life grows the plant.” 10,000 Trees makes us ask ourselves what we aim to grow in this lifetime and it’s Victor who gently teaches us that it’s never too late to begin.
