My father belongs to the Church of Nature. I think I do, too. Nature grounds me and helps me understand myself. Connects me to the wonder and awe in life.
My brother Forest Woodward, a photographer and videographer, made this remarkable short documentary about our father and their connection to Nature and each other. Of course I cried the first time I saw it. And I revisit it about once a month to honor our connections, smile and be nearly consumed by gratitude.
I am delighted that others are moved by this tribute as well. It was the Winner of the Most Inspirational Film, “Most Inspiring Story” award at the 2015 5Point Film Festival, and earned a place in National Geographic’s short list of Best Adventure Films of 2015.
Brendan Leonard co-created the film as editor. High five, you guys! Thank you!
