The Soul Of A Tree – 16:46 min
Dir. Mari Walker
Synopsis: World famous woodworker George Nakashima’s path crosses twice with a man from Eden, Idaho named Bill Vaughn: once when George was interned during World War II… and decades later, when Bill picked up the book ‘The Soul of a Tree’… This story is not only about the incredible furniture Mr. Nakashima created during his lifetime (his work was featured across the world and he was regarded as one of premiere woodworkers in the U.S.), it proves the necessity of resilience and finding creative inspiration during unimaginable circumstances. A story of chance encounters and the forces in life that unite us, The Soul of a Tree pays tribute these two great men.
