Project Wild Thing
At 10.30am and 2.30pm
Filmmaker David Bond is a worried man. His kids' waking hours are dominated by marketing, and a screen time threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. Like city kids everywhere, they spend way too much time indoors - not like it was back in his day. He decides it's time to get back to nature – literally.
'This film will change your life''
Patrick Barkham, The Guardian
There will be two screenings of Project Wild Thing (suitable for ages 6+) at 10.30 and 2pm. Tickets are free but you must book to guarantee a place.
