“The Trees is about an enchanted forest that appears in the blink of an eye, all over the world, overgrowing and destroying everything that stands before it. It’s as if several centuries of ruin and natural reclamation have happened in an instant. The story follows a hopeless, cowardly Englishman whose estranged wife is in Ireland. He sets off on foot, through the woods and the devastated world, hoping to save both his marriage and himself”.
Ali Shaw in conversation with altBlackpool’s Sandra Mangan
