The movie "TREE IS LIKE A MAN" is an educational documentary where a tree cutter is emotionaly connected to the forest.

The movie utilises minimum speech. The picture and music speak about the need to preserve the forest as important part of human environment.

Refik Kajmak is a logger from village of Vraniska close to Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Besides being a logger, he loves wood. At wood cutting competitions in former Yugoslavia and Bosnia & Herzegovina he had high scores and results.

He views the forest not only through cutting. He feels for the tree, nurishes it, watches and admires it. One old dry tree that the cutter needs to bring down was esspecially chosen for filming. His sights go down, he will use this tree for heating, furniture etc.

 Director Nisvet Hrustic of Bosnia and Herzegovina presents an engaging statement on the co-existence of man and nature.

"I am an environmental film producer and have produced over 30 films on the topic of environmental awareness for students and general masses. I think the medium of TV and video would be only effective medium in developing countries to change the mindset to look at the problem of Climate change and global warming. Using this medium would have dramatic effect on the environment in future years." Jagdish
