Last year, the two German comedians, Uli and Suso went into the woods from our campsite to survive in the wilderness for two weeks. They captured their adventure and turned it into a real movie. Men Staring at Trees can be viewed via the Youtube link below. (The film is in German but Youtube can provide subtitles).
In May 2022, Boettcher and Engelhardt went into the wilderness of the Carpathians. They wanted to spend two weeks in the forest, far away from the achievements of the modern world, to get a clear idea of what life would be like without these achievements. How the civilized man feels without civilization. What longings, insights and problems would show up. “Men who stare at trees” is a research project for Uli Boettcher’s stage program “Auszeit”, which premiered in October ’22.
