MISSION

Treeman Silhouette Venice Beach

A DOCUMENTREE USES TREEMAN’S MISSION AND THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE OF LIONEL TO EXPLORE OUR HUMAN NATURE BY EXAMINING OUR RELATIONSHIP TO NATURE, TECHNOLOGY AND EACH OTHER. OUR VIEW OF THE WORLD THROUGH THE LENS OF DIGITAL MEDIA IS TRANSFORMING OUR REALITY. NEWS MEDIA GARNERS OUR ATTENTION WITH STORIES OF FEAR AND CULTURAL DIVISION, SOCIAL MEDIA DEMONSTRATES THE POWER TO SWAY ELECTIONS AND OVERTHROW OF GOVERNMENTS, WHILE TEENAGE SUICIDE AND SMARTPHONE ADDICTION RATES RISE EERILY IN TANDEM. WE ARE AT A CROSS ROADS OF CIVILIZATION: HOW CAN THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY UNITE US RATHER THAN DIVIDE US, AND HOW CAN WE BETTER COEXIST AND SURVIVE AS A SPECIES?

TREEMAN USES THE BENEVOLENT SYMBOL OF A TREE TO REFOCUS OUR VIEW OF THE WORLD THROUGH OUR HUMAN NATURE, REMINDING US THAT THE SURVIVAL OF OUR SPECIES IS BOUND IN OUR ABILITY TO COOPERATE AND THAT WE SHARE A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE AND EACH OTHER. WE HOPE TO ENTERTAIN AND INSPIRE OUR AUDIENCE BEYOND “CLICKTIVISM” TO ACTIVISM AS WE EXPLORE VOLUNTEERISM WITH TREEMAN REMINDING US THAT WE ARE ALL REFLECTIONS OF NATURE.
