Based on a bestseller by Isabella Tree, Wilding is the inspirational story of an English country estate that joins the rewilding revolution and thrives. London Film Festival selection.
When Isabella’s husband, Charlie, inherited the 1,400-hectare Knepp estate in West Sussex, the land was plainly suffering after decades of intensive farming. Transforming it wasn’t going to be easy – as well as noxious weeds, the family faced unsympathetic neighbours and time-consuming bureaucracy. David Allen’s film follows their journey, capturing the triumphs and setbacks and ultimately revealing a place transformed with ancient breed pigs, flower-filled hedgerows, busy beavers, rare storks, and magical swarms of butterflies. The cinematography by BAFTA and Emmy award winners Tim Cragg and Simon de Glanville is appropriately glorious, and the film practically breathes with renewed life.
The film has an exceptionally big heart, there’s lots to learn, it’s visually everything you could hope for, and is an honestly wonderful way to spend 75 minutes
