Rewilding by Clare Langan

Films NMC Recordings

We're delighted to share a preview for an upcoming film from Clare Langan featuring music by NMC Composer Linda Buckley.

In the film a mother and three children find themselves trapped at the bottom of a perilous cliff on a remote island. As the woman repeatedly makes failed attempts to scale the vertical cliffs looking for a way out, it is the children who intuitively listen to the animals and tune in to their environment, eventually leading them to their escape. The film is an allegory for how past generations have ignored the warnings about climate change and have led our children to the edge of a perilous cliff. The film not only addresses this rebalancing of our relationship with the natural world, but the “rewilding “ of ourselves as human beings, through a transformation in our thinking and our consciousness.

Here are Clare Langan's motivations behind the creation of the film

'In recent years we have become urgently aware that global ecology is a delicate balancing act. The disintegration of the natural world has seen the mass extinction of animals, insects and plants at an alarming rate and can no longer be ignored. The Rewilding is about redressing this imbalance, which has reached a tipping point. It has become necessary for humans to evolve within and with their environment in order to survive. We cannot continue to ignore our responsibilities as the custodians of this planet, plundering the natural world without consequences, otherwise the future that we leave for our children will not be one that is flourishing.'
