TO THE WOODS

IN CZECH CINEMAS FROM 4 OCTOBER

Honza Marak (Tomas Hanak) has long since abandoned a career in IT and has bought a cottage on the outskirts of a small village, where he’s settled in with his wife Marketa (Bara Schlesinger), daughter Anyna (Anna Linhartova) and son Sayen (Vojta Vovesny). He works in the woods as a forest labourer repairing roads and enclosures, cutting wood to sell and assisting the foresters. Marketa earns a living as a masseuse and alternative healer, making use of various mind-altering plants and mushrooms, which leads to conflict with the old inhabitants and eventually with drug enforcement.

To The Woods is the sequel to Tomas Vorel’s successful film Out of the City, released in 2000.

To The Woods is a celebration of woods, water and hillsides, and of the animals that still live there.

To The Woods pays tribute to Czech woodsmen and farmers who bravely face the natural elements and urban encroachment.

To The Woods is full of flowers, animals and Czech movie stars.
