Last summer University of Utah biologist Nalini Nadkarni fell out of a tree.

Fifty feet.

She’s lucky to be alive.

Nalini is one of the world’s most knowledgeable experts on trees and she’s up in them all the time, so you would think something like this would have happened before. It hasn’t.

Almost dying makes you think about your life, as you’ll see in this film, created in partnership with Skylar Nielsen and his team at Vita Brevis Films.

In 2014, we created our first short with Nalini Nadkarni called CLIMBING A TREE. Watch it at videowest.kuer.org/climbing-a-tree/
