Project Wild Thing is an initiative created by British film maker and worried father, David Bond. The film is intended to raise awareness about getting children outside and reconnecting with the natural world again.
Throughout the film Bond unveils some of the large cultural beliefs that keep children indoors so that we can begin to change these views and let our child run wild again!
"Filmmaker David Bond is a worried man. His kids' waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing, and a screen dependence 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." (Quote from the Project Wild Thing website http://projectwildthing.com/film)
