THE FILM

I COULD HAVE BEEN A TREE INSTEAD

In the hauntingly beautiful realm of "I Could Have Been A Tree Instead," the fusion of art, technology, and storytelling transcends the ordinary, inviting audiences into an otherworldly audiovisual odyssey.

"I Could Have Been A Tree Instead" is not merely a film—it's a testament to the limitless possibilities when art transcends

its traditional confines, inviting audiences to embrace the enigmatic beauty of the unknown, to ponder the unspoken stories hidden within the brushstrokes and chiseled forms.

Immersive, thought-provoking, and profoundly moving, this audiovisual symphony is a testament to the evocative power

of artistry, music, and technology harmoniously converging to create an experience that lingers in the soul

long after the screen fades to black.

CONTEXT

This film is a digital creation sprung out of the collaborative art of Beatrix Ost and Michelle Gagliano. A surrealist dive into the immediate realities of humanity’s affect on Earth - imploring us to pay attention, asking us to look deeper at our personal effects on our internal and external environments. How can we make our individual and collective lives more meaningful, beautiful, and with heart?

What will it require for us to know we are all

an integral part of nature?
