HD DVD – Documentary Short
Additional Product Information
This evocative documentary filmed in stunning High Definition chronicles the journey of The Hope Tree from the initial spark of an idea, early concepts, engineering, fabrication and sculpting to installation. Artist, Carol Jeanotilla, discusses the symbolic meaning behind every aspect of the sculpture - from the very structure to the symbols, “Loralie” and the copper leaves reaching for the stars. Hear from cancer survivor, Emily Miner, as she discusses how she got through her own cancer journey. This 26 minute documentary short shows arresting “jib shot” views of the sculpture that are just not possible to see otherwise. It is as close as you can get to actually being there, gliding your own hand over the sculptures glistening surface.
It is a poignant representation of the meaning of hope that you can watch on your TV-DVD player or computer any time you or a friend are in need of a reminder that hope is indeed alive and well.
