Director: Ross Gibson
Wild focuses on the stories and legends of one tract of land, the Pilliga Forest in northwest New South Wales. How do the dynamic processes of history and ecology work to produce meanings, warnings and systems of wisdom in the location where our lives take place? Integrating a selection of old audio tapes, home movies, animations and dramatic enactments, the film shows us that the shape of the land is also the shape of our history. Written and directed by Ross Gibson, creator of Camera Nature (1984), Wild was winner of the best film in the environment category at the 1994 San Francisco International Film Festival.
