Written and directed by Luc Jacquet, ONCE UPON A FOREST invites the spectator into a never-before-seen world of natural wonder and staggering beauty. For the first time, we will be able to watch a rain forest growing before our eyes. Drawing on a vast fund of research and knowledge, ONCE UPON A FOREST will lead viewers on a journey into the depths of the tropical jungle into the very heart of life on earth.
Only cinema can offer this unique voyage into a completely untamed universe, a world of perfect balance in which each living thing – from the smallest to the largest – plays an essential role.
The film will deliver a complete sensory immersion in the primaeval splendour of one of nature’s richest mysteries, inviting the audience to enter, discover and marvel at a universe of untold treasures while joining its voice to the ever-growing awareness of the need to preserve our world.
