FilmTREE journeys to the archaic world of a remote mountain town as it comes to life after a long winter. Dancing people carry a tree onto the main square, where preparations are underway for the feast day of the town’s patron saint. With ethnographic precision, De Seta shows a microcosm of human society, held together by customs and traditions.
