Wetheuncivilized is a documentary film, exploring the possibilities that exist beyond the perameters of this 'civilized' world. Our journey over the past year has taken us the length and breadth of Britain. We have camped beside Highland Lochs in Scotland, and slept on bedroom floors in Bristol.
We have spoken to many people, from Satish Kumar to Polly Higgins; Bruce Parry to Glennie Kindred; Not to mention countless other inspiring people who are living the change and working at a grass-roots level - the activists, the artists, the alternative communities, the musicians, and the mavericks. The stories and wisdom we have gleaned during this uncivilized journey will form the fabric of the film, which is set for general release in Spring 2015.
