Big Green Week Preview: Wilding + Recorded Q&APG

This screening is followed by a recorded Q&A hosted by Craig Bennett of the Wildlife Trusts with Isabella Tree, filmed at Knepp.

“Wonderful…An inspiring true story that shows how we can revive nature and restore hope” Patrick Barkham, The Guardian
“A lyrical hymn to the self-healing of the English countryside.” — Dog and Wolf

From the Academy Award winning studio that brought you SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN and THE TERRITORY.

Based on Isabella Tree’s best-selling book by the same title, WILDING tells the incredible story of a young couple that bets on nature for the future of their failing, four-hundred-year-old estate. They set to work with their groundbreaking vision, battling entrenched tradition and major forces along the way, daring 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 and beyond.

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 BFI London Film Festival.
