Trees plays an important role in the lives of five characters from Israel-Palestine: they’re a source of income, a part of the native landscape, a nature to be preserved, a consumer product, and a nuisance to be removed. Our attitudes towards trees and the range of significances we assign to them constitute a mirror that reflects human society itself. This unique film shows a strong formalist sensibility and captures the collective unconscious of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a patient observation of nature. Vegetative Love visually incarnates the famous poem by one of the great Hebrew poets, Shaul Tchernichovsky, who wrote in 1923: “Man is but a small piece of land / Man is but an image of his homeland’s landscape”.
