Tornado Scene from Extended Version (2018) of The Tree of Life

Included in the 50-minutes of additional footage in the Criterion Collection’s The Tree of Life is the “tornado scene”.

I visited Smithville, Texas in March of 2019 and spoke with the neighbor of the main home in the film and shr recalled see the street “a complete mess” when filming. This footage was not included in the original 2011 cut.
