Directed by Julie Bertucelli
US release date: July 15, 2011

Zeitgeist Films is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Tree (L’Arbre), a captivating film about love, grief and acceptance starring the exquisite Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist, I’m Not There).

Blindsided with anguish after her husband’s sudden death, Dawn (Gainsbourg)—along with her four young children—struggles to make sense of life without him. Eight-year-old Simone (unforgettable newcomer Morgana Davies) becomes convinced that her father is whispering to her through the leaves of the gargantuan fig tree that towers over their house. The family is initially comforted by its presence, but then the tree’s enormous roots slowly begin to encroach on the abode and threaten their fragile existence….

An Australian-French co-production directed by Julie Bertuccelli (Since Otar Left), The Tree was the Closing Night Film at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, and has been critically acclaimed upon its European release.

The Tree will open in New York on July 15 at The Beekman Theatre and the Village East Cinema:
