Only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
Only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees
A thousand trees.

Trees In Technicolor

And still, one day the trees will take their revenge on us and feast on our remains (with their friends, the fungi).

Alberi (Trees) is a poetic documentary about trees, made by 22 Italian pupils (9 years old) during Art and Music classes.

The short film has been directed and edited by their teacher, Raffaella Traniello, using only free software: Cinelerra CV running under the Edubuntu operative system.

Eppure, un bel dì, gli alberi si prenderanno la loro rivincita e banchetterano assieme ai funghi sui nostri resti.

Alberi è un documentario poetico sugli alberi, fatto di 22 alunni di una quarta elementare durante le ore di musica ed arte.

Il corto è stato diretto e montato dalla loro insegnante, Raffaella Traniello, usando solo  software libero: Cinelerra CV in esecuzione sotto il sistema operativo Edubuntu.
