LEAVES OF THE TREE LE FOGLIE DELL'ALBERO UNITED STATES/ITALY 2015 English | 96 min. | Drama PRODUCTION Gogi Productions

CAST Eric Roberts Sean Young

ANTE NOVAKOVIC directed, co-produced and co-wrote Leaves of the Tree. His short film, “The Fix” in which his brother, Kresh Novakovic starred opposite Armand Assante, was nominated for Best Short Film at the Long Island International Film Expo, the Palm Beach International Film Festival, the Sarajevo Film Festival, the SoHo International Film Festival, and won the Audience Award for Best Short at the Gasparilla International Film Festival.

A mystical tree leads a once powerful lawyer sidelined by a life threatening disease to Sicily to discover the secret of the tree's medicinal leaves. “The Tree" intersects faith, doubt and belief for all those that come into contact with its ability to heal. The film originated from a web blog written by David Healey during a protracted illness.  A lover of history and Sicily, Mr. Healey crafted the story from his own personal experience during the depth of his illness, his study of history, and his love of Sicily and his family. Un albero mistico porta un avvocato un tempo potente ma ora affetto da una grave malattia in Sicilia alla scoperta del segreto delle sue foglie curative. L’albero magico unisce la fede, il dubbio e la credenza per tutti coloro che vengono a contatto con i suoi straordinari poteri curativi. Il film è nato da un blog scritto da David Healey per tenersi occupato mentre lottava con una grave malattia. Amante della storia e della Sicilia, Healey ha imperniato la storia sulle sue esperienze personali nel profondo della sua malattia, i suoi studi storici, ed il suo amore per la Sicilia e la sua famiglia.
