Quote about Trees That Reach the Sky

"[Trees that Reach the Sky] follows the tree's transformation from the time it is felled until it is integrated into the edifice of a Mosquito bomber. The thread of images detailing the concreteness and materiality of the production process and the involvement of workers in various stages of construction binds and spurs the energy of the entire film's plot structure."
-- Malek Khouri (source)
