Shot on location in the Berkshires during one of the coldest winters on record with two to three feet of snow on the ground, Bob and the Trees is an artful mix of documentary and narrative. Bob, a 50-year old logger with a soft spot for golf and gangsta rap, is struggling to make ends meet in a merciless industry. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2015, won the top prize at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, and has been screened in more than 20 international film festivals around the world. This screening is the first in the Norfolk Independent Film Series and will be followed by discussion with the filmmaker Diego Ongaro.
