The Tree House

Synopsis

In 2045, a man living on Mars examines footage brought back from his encounters with an indigenous community in the jungles of Vietnam. His thoughts drift from ritual burial practices, issues of identities, the politics and aesthetics of image-making, to the seen and unseen forces that shape cultures. Combining elements of science fiction and ethnography, The Tree House is a powerful exploration of how time and environment relate to our understanding of home.
