Find the epic in the tiny from the perspective of an acorn.

Join this extraordinary journey to discover the beats and rhythms of a busy, beautiful woodland world. Uncover bizarre larger than life fungi, creaking tree roots and thrumming underworlds.

Breathe explores the inner workings of trees, beautifully realised with a combination of stunning puppetry, breathtakingly detailed sets and groundbreaking live camera work. Underscored through a truly unique blend of thumping drum and bass and live ethereal folk songs. This is a 2024 Offie Award Finalist that celebrates trees.
