Thursday 11 January, 6:30 – 9:30, Tickets £3.50
An evening hosted by School of the Wild, the screening will be followed by an informal Q&A, exploring some of the themes within the film.
Project Wild Thing is a humorous feature-length documentary about one film-maker’s campaign to reconnect kids with nature. David Bond is concerned. His kids’ waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing, and a screen dependence threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. In an attempt to compete with the brands, which take up a third of his daughter’s life, Bond appoints himself Marketing Director for Nature. His humorous journey unearths some painful truths about modern family life. The film kick-started The Wild Network – a network of people and organisations who are on a mission to re-wild childhood.
Doors & bar from 6.30pm, screening starts 7pm. Tickets £3.50, available on the door or in advance here.
