An ancient Australian forest invites us into her rapidly changing world where rare life is discovered and inevitable death unfolds.
The Great Forest is an experimental natural history documentary that focuses on the rare animals of the Central Highlands forest region of Victoria, Australia. By showing the beauty of the forest, through the eyes of the forest herself, audiences will come to marvel at the complex symbiotic nature of this ecosystem, from the forest floor to the canopy above.
