The Man Who Planted Trees

In the spirit of the Easter Holiday, we proudly present The Man Who Planted Trees.

This is quite possibly one of the most inspirational films ever made. It's virtually impossible to think of all the great things Man can do until it is done during the little time we have here on this Earth.

This is the story about a French man named Elezeard Bouffier. We are given narration from the author of his journey through a French desert just before WWI along with accounts of his visits after the war. Elezeard begins as a shepherd who decides to plant trees to pass the time and to give life back to the dry barren land. It is hard to imagine the immense patience and unwavering effort for a single individual to achieve a work worthy of God.

Shown few times for Public Broadcast, this story has caught the attention of many people to which it has given them hope and a sense of mortality. A wonderful addition to any video collection. It has something everyone can learn from and is entertaining to watch over and over again.
