The Secret Lives of Trees

Take a trip through Spain's breathtaking and diverse scenery in The Silent Friends, which places trees front and center. This short documentary from production company Kauri Multimedia is an ode to these often undervalued but vital members of our ecosystem.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
