The Wakefield International Film Festival has been offering a selection of documentary films, many of them award-winning, every year. Of this year’s eight films, several address the theme of humans in nature:
THE MOO MAN (U.K., 2013), showing February 22 and 23, is “a laugh-out-loud, emotional roller-coaster of a journey” about a farmer and the 55 cows on his dairy farm. Followed by a panel discussion with area farmers.
People of a Feather (Canada, 2011), on March 8 and 9, explores the relationship of the Belcher Islands Inuit in Hudson Bay with the eider duck, and the effects of environmental change. Dubbed “a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature.”
Though-provoking films in a beautiful setting. See the Wakefield International Film Festival website for details on all the films, tickets and location.
