Wilding (PG) + Intro + Short Film

Saturday 22nd June 2024 - Tuesday 25th June 2024

Dir. David Allen, UK, 2024, 75 mins.

Introductions: Saturday 22nd 5.30pm Chris Avent / Tuesday 25th 8pm Jerry Griffiths

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.

“This astonishingly moving film is a balm for worrying times.”– Arts Fuse

We are delighted to welcome Chris and Jerry who will talk about the work happening at Poole Farm in Plymouth which aims ‘to re-connect people with nature by exploring the woods, stomping through puddles, counting butterflies, meeting the animals, learning about bees and beaver watching. We are proud to be able to demonstrate sustainable land management that enhances and protects the landscape.’

Find out more about Poole Farm.
