#1)  Animated Film About Replanting?

Postby jamesrobertsmith » Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:03 am

Years ago I watched a cartoon which featured a man who went about planting oak trees in the ruined battlefields of WWI. As the years pass, his trees grow and the land slowly heals. Forests are reborn, wildlife returns, the aquifer reestablishes itself.

I only saw the film once. I never knew the title.

Anyone here know the title of this film and who produced it? I'm pretty sure it was a European film.

Beautiful award-winning animated film based on an short story (also public domain) by Jean Giono. Features a message about the power of the individual and has inspired wild tree-planting worldwide.

#4)  The Man Who Planted Trees by Jean Giono

Postby edfrank » Sun Jan 01, 2012 9:34 pm

from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Planted_Trees)
The Man Who Planted Trees (French title L'homme qui plantait des arbres), also known as The Story of Elzéard Bouffier, The Most Extraordinary Character I Ever Met, and The Man Who Planted Hope and Reaped Happiness, is an allegorical tale by French author Jean Giono, published in 1953.

It tells the story of one shepherd's long and successful singlehanded effort to re-forest a desolate valley in the foothills of the Alps near Provence throughout the first half of the 20th century. The tale is quite short—only about 4000 words long.
