PROJECT WILD THING is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.
Film-maker David Bond believes we have a problem. We are raising a generation of children who don’t play outside any more. Time spent playing outdoors is down 50% in just one generation.
But David Bond has a solution. And it began with a film. Project Wild Thing premièred at the Sheffield Documentary Film Festival in June, 2013 and starts a nationwide run in PictureHouse cinemas in the autumn. So begins a tour of the UK talking to academics, branding experts, parents and children to understand how we can reconnect with nature.
