The New Wilderness

Presented with the Royal Netherlands Embassy

In one of the most densely populated and manipulated countries of Europe lies the Oostvaardersplassen – a unique experiment in letting nature run wild. The film charts the cycle of life through the course of four seasons in this thriving, verdant wetland. The New Wilderness urges us to once more embrace the voice of the wild. In an age of seemingly unrelenting ecological breakdown, this new wilderness is a rare and inspiring beacon of hope. Directed by Mark Verkerk. Produced by Ton Okkerse.
