The HBO original documentary “Trees and Other Entanglements” is directed by Irene Taylor, a Peabody and Emmy-winning filmmaker known for her work on HBO’s “Moonlight Sonata: Deafness in Three Movements” and “Beware the Slenderman.” The documentary will debut on Tuesday, December 12, from 10:00-11:55 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will also be available for streaming on Max.

The film is a poetic meditation on nature, mortality, and the passage of time, exploring our symbiotic connection with trees. Through artful imagery, photography, and animation, the documentary introduces us to a diverse range of individuals who have a deep connection with trees. These include an American bonsai tree master, a photographer who travels the world to capture images of rare trees, a man dedicated to planting saplings after clear-cutting, and a woman who celebrates her childhood memories. The film also tells the stories of George Weyerhaeuser Sr., a lumber baron whose life was shaped by a childhood kidnapping, and the filmmaker herself, who struggles to eradicate ivy from choking age-old trees as a metaphorical bid to free herself from the invasive grip of Alzheimer’s.

The participants featured in the documentary include bonsai master Ryan Neil, photographer Beth Moon, forest warrior Dirk Brinkman, recollector Carolyn Finney, and lumber heir George Weyerhaeuser Sr.
