Wilding

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 is a welcome return of David Allen's film which screened at the Aldeburgh Documentary Festival in November 2023.


With five Emmys and twelve Wildscreen Pandas to his name, David Allen is recognised as one of the leading independent producer/directors in his field. Most recent productions include landmark conservation series such as Earth: A New Wild and H2O: The Molecule That Made Us. Recently David produced the Emmy Award-winning feature documentary The Serengeti Rules  and a lockdown authored film My Garden of a Thousand Bees, which opened the 40th anniversary year of the PBS series Nature and won David his second Golden Panda at Wildscreen.


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.
