“The Forest” is a non-profit, autonomous arts-and-events organisation situated in the heart of Edinburgh. It is the social hub for the city's 'D.I.Y.' (Do-It-Yourself) community, where anyone can produce, present, perform and consume art for free – a truly unique venture in a town centre where everything comes at a price.
"[S+P^2]" follows a handful of The Forest's volunteers in the run-up to the organisation's "Forest X Banquet", an event being held in celebration of its tenth anniversary. Exploring the internal and external pressures faced by The Forest in its attempts to operate outside the norm, the film ultimately invokes the question: what does it mean to be free?
