The Amstelpark - the trees tell their story centers around the 6,000 trees of this Amsterdam city park as silent witnesses of climate change. The project resulted in a speculative Trial in the park - the trees speak out in which the trees stood up for their rights and hold local polluters accountable.
Below is the trailer. Click here for the documentary.

This website shows all parts of the project; the tree ring research on the trees of the Amstelpark in the LivingLab, the installation Parliament of Trees, built with borrowed tree trunks and planks, the speculative Trial in the park – the trees speak out and its file (pleas, defence, evidence, verdict, amongst other) and podcast, footage in the form of a documentary and an essay written as a result of this project.

The Amstelpark – the trees narrate their story was initiated by artist Elmo Vermijs in collaboration with tree biologist Prof. Ute-Sass Klaassen, environmental lawyers Jessica den Outer and Jan van de Venis and art institution Zone2Source, Amsterdam, NL.
