Annie and the Tree
This ten minute film features a seven year old girl, Annie, who is freely playing in the grounds of her school. She is wearing a Gopro camera mounted on a chest harness as part of research exploring children's play in natural environments. The play is her own, completely unadulterated and freely chosen, and shows the empathy, care and lengths she goes to, to patch-up a 'wounded' tree. (Click on image for external link to film).
