Magnolia has acquired North American rights to Icelandic director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurdsson’s “Under the Tree.”The comedy follows two neighboring families as tensions mount between them in a tranquil suburb. A giant tree, which casts a looming shadow on one of the neighbors’ properties, is at the center of it. “Under the Tree” stars Steinthor Hroar Steinthorsson, Edda Bjorgvinsdottir, Sigurdur Sigurjonsson, Thorsteinn Bachmann, Selma Bjornsdottir and Lara Johanna Jonsdottir.The Icelandic-language film premiered at the Venice Film Festival and is screening at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Contemporary World Cinema section. Magnolia is planning an early 2018 release.

- Seas rise, trees die: Climate change before your eyes
By WAYNE PARRY, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
PORT REPUBLIC, N.J. (AP) — They're called "ghost forests" — dead trees along vast swaths of coastline invaded by rising seas, something scientists call one of the most visible markers of climate change.The process has occurred naturally for thousands of years, but it has accelerated in recent decades as polar ice melts and raises sea levels, scientists say, pushing salt water farther inland and killing trees in what used to be thriving freshwater plains.[...] scientists agree the startling sight of dead trees in once-healthy areas is an easy-to-grasp example of the consequences of climate change.[...] the death of the trees makes soil microbes release nitrogen, which adds to nitrogen already occurring from other sources, including agricultural runoff, to contribute to algae blooms and reduced oxygen that can sicken or kill fish.Seas off the East Coast have risen by 1.3 feet over the last 100 years, said Ben Horton, a Rutgers University professor and expert on sea level rise.Marcelo Ardon, a biology professor at North Carolina State University, studied one site called the Palmetto Pear Tree Preserve on Albemarle Sound in North Carolina from 2006 to 2009.In southern New Jersey, the most affected species is the Atlantic white cedar, which was a mainstay of the shipbuilding industry because of its resistance to rot.
