Wilding (PG)(2024) 75 mins + Q&A

‘They dared to gamble everything on the power of nature’

A recorded Q&A with Isabella Tree will follow this film screening.

Based on Isabella Tree’s best-selling book by the same title, Wilding tells the story of a young couple that bets on nature for the future of their failing, four-hundred-year-old estate.

The young couple battles entrenched tradition, and dares to place the fate of their farm in the hands of nature.

Ripping down the fences, they set the land back to the wild and entrust its recovery to a motley mix of animals both tame and wild.

It is the beginning of a grand experiment that will become one of the most significant rewilding experiments in Europe.

 

Wilding is produced by three-time Oscar-winning production company Passion Pictures; partnered with Oscar-nominated and Emmy and Peabody Award-winning HHMI Tangled Bank Studios whose most recent film All That Breathes won best documentary at Sundance, Cannes and the London Film Festival. This is the third film produced by these two studios, following the Emmy Award winning film The Serengeti Rules (2018), and the Emmy-nominated documentary My Garden of a Thousand Bees (2021), which won the Golden Panda Award at Wildscreen.

The film is directed by five-time Emmy Award-winning David Allen, and photographed by multi BAFTA & Emmy Award-winning cinematographers Tim Cragg and Simon de Glanville.

Wildling’s musical score, is composed by Biggi Hilmars and Grammy-nominated Jon Hopkins, cited by The New Yorker as “one of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation.”
