The Art of Wild is a new 15-minute documentary which reconnects us to the earth through the lens of five experiential artists from across British Columbia. The film celebrates lifestyle commitment, immersing us in a truly genuine reflection of where each artist finds their passion for creative outlets. Looking intimately at life and the world we live in, the film reminds us of our humble place in this vast universe.
The film follows artists and athletes Devin Card, Lynsey Dyer, Kate Harris, Jeremy Koreski, and Jamie Tanner, as they climb routes on the southern end of Vancouver Island, dive into the north Pacific Ocean waves of Tofino, ride the Kooetnay Rockies of Revelstoke and bike the lost landscapes of Atlin from a tiny off-grid cabin tucked away in the most northern corner of the province.
“Exploring the drive artists have to experience the natural world, I found that despite differences between the art form, age, or upbringing, there was always a common draw … a desire for a more rich and raw life,” says Producer Lindsay Marie Stewart, a National Geographic Young Explorer and award-winning documentary filmmaker based in Victoria, BC.
Beautifully captivating a resonating message many can relate to, The Art of Wild inspires us to find strength in nature’s capacity to be resilient and simply enjoy the beauty of nature and the exploration, contemplation and freedom that it evokes.
