Tilt to the Sun

Short Film (Full Length) – 1966

A last frost of flowers blooms on silent trees, and lakes lie quiet in the pause between two seasons.
– From the narration
In the north the first cicadas start beating out the rhythm of New Zealand's spring.
– narration
New Zealand’s native trees don’t lose their leaves, but along the creeks and rivers the alien willows come to bud. Soon a green shade will weep over the water where young trout fight their way to adulthood.
– narration
Rata in the valleys flames like a tree-destroying fire.
