Abstract A re-creation of the two-year period (1845-1847) during which Thoreau lived alone in a cabin at Walden Pond, savoring the fruits of solitary communion with Nature while bemoaning the lot of the mass of men who lead lives of quiet desperation. The visuals offer an exceptionally lyrical illustration of the passing of the seasons; the commentary is drawn from Thoreau's own words.
