Synopsis

WILD THINGS is a feature length documentary that follows a new generation of environmental activists that are mobilising against forces more powerful than themselves and saying, enough. They are grandmothers, farmers, doctors, teachers, traditional land owners – and remarkably a growing number of school kids. Inspired by the actions of Swedish school student Greta Thunberg, a growing army of eco warriors are mobilising to save wilderness, Indigenous sacred sites, threatened species and ultimately planet earth from the ravages of climate change. Armed only with mobile phones and an unwaivering commitment to change our world, they will do whatever it takes – from chaining themselves to coal trains, braving sub-zero temperatures to protect rainforest from logging or hanging a “Make Coal History” banner from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Their tactics are designed to generate mass action with one finger tap. Messages go viral within seconds. It’s a far cry from the heady days of the Franklin River Blockade and the anti-uranium mining movement when street marches were the only way to be heard.

Against a backdrop of unprecedented drought, fire and floods battering the nation; we witness how today’s environmentalists are making a difference and explore connections with the past through the untold stories of previous campaigns. Surprisingly the methods of old still have currency when the groundswell of school students say, ‘change is coming’ and call a national strike demanding action against global warming.
