Backyard Wilderness reveals the unexpected wonders of nature that take place right under our noses in backyards and communities across North America.
Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home within commuting distance of New York City, the film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife activity from astounding macro shots to amazing family behaviours, including mothers with offspring—all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests, and moving along the forest floor and pond bottom, to show nature and its habitats, in rare intimacy.
The human story focuses on a young girl’s awakening to the intricacies and joys of nature. She and her modern family, living next to the woods, are at first blind to the real-life spectacle around them, absorbed by an array of electronic devices in their busy lifestyle.
Produced by Emmy® winning and Oscar® nominated filmmakers Andrew Young and Susan Todd of Archipelago Films and executive produced and distributed by Giant Screen industry leader SK Film.
