It’s A Wild Life,
film Press kit information 2015
This film is ORGANIC by NATURE and true to life as any film has ever wanted to become. It took 6.5 years to be AN HONEST FILM, it was not easy! Kennan Ward / director.
Along the Northern Coast of California the Pacific ocean creates a rich environment that silhouettes a World Heritage sea and landscape. The marine fog that forms along the coast allows a unique habitat for flora and fauna to flourish. The wild coast of Big Sur is a topography from the Redwoods to the Sea.??Home to some of the tallest trees in the world, this landscape transitions to a marine sanctuary where whales, otters and seals flourish. Just onshore, bobcats demonstrate a never before filmed behavior of flying through the air to catch unsuspecting gulls. Mountain lions, black bears, Endangered Spotted Owls and rare California Condors nesting inside a Redwood Tree, all make their homes in the redwood forest. ??This film will uniquely connect the audience to the land and seascape of Big Sur. We follow the main characters that are deeply influenced by this place. The human characters name is Feynner, a long term resident and caretaker of the land. The wildlife characters include bobcats, hummingbirds and the magnificent condors.??In the end, we learn that Big Sur is a land that we tried to tame, to control, to make our own, but we did not succeed because in some places on Earth, the physical and spiritual characteristics of the place are too much for humans to conquer. And so we gain respect of the laws of the natural world, driven by the unique and dramatic ecosystem that we call Big Sur, one of Earth’s greatest gifts.
