Leaves of the Tree

-1The award-winning film Leaves of the Tree will be screened in the Melbourne World International Film Festival at the Reading Cinemas in Dandenong Plaza on Friday 4 December at 5pm (bookings can be made here). The film, adapted by David Healey from his novel Kindness for the Damned: A Novella of Intrigue, Love and Redemption in Sicily, is set in Sicily (Segesta, Erice, Castellammare del Golfo) and tells the story of a sick man, a once-powerful lawyer sidelined by a life-threatening disease, who follows a doctor to a remote area in the island’s northwest in search of a mystical tree that supposedly has amazing healing powers. David Healey would be happy to be contacted by anyone interested in learning more about the film.
