World-renowned animated filmmaker Frédéric Back (1924-2013) devoted his unique talent to a cause that was central to his life and is more topical than ever: a profound respect for nature coupled with a keen sense of humanity's responsibility toward the environment. This 4-disc DVD box set includes: The Man Who Planted Trees (Oscar Winner) - Crac! (Oscar Winner) - The Mighty River - Taratata! - Illusion? - Inon or the Conquest of Fire - The Creation of Birds - All Nothing - Abracadabra. These masterpieces are accompanied by commentary from Frédéric Back and his producer Hubert Tison, as well as close to 40 photos documenting the artist's work. Frédéric Back's films have been described as ''painting in motion''. Combining the patient, painstaking craftsmanship of a medieval illuminator with modern film animation techniques, this timeless art speaks and educates. Each film attests in its own way to the beauty and fragility of nature, as well as to the impact of human activity on this irreplaceable heritage.
