about the film



Garantrees tells the story of two brothers who have the idea to start an ecological initiative. One of them has an autistic, obsession for planting small trees in rows and in all the wrong places in their village. He also has a passion for collecting rock music memorabilia, much to the dismay of a local celebrity.

The film actually follows the establishment of their idea for an ecological initiative but in a fictionalised context. Without this genuine pursuit for realising the ecological initiative, the film can not exist and without the film the ecological initiative will also not make sense for us and this work.

The outcome of this film will be about luck, inventiveness, friendship and the Dutch understanding of ‘gunnen’ (the opposite of ‘to begrudge’), that makes things right again.
