Wild Cornwall: Out On The Edge (N/A)
Saturday 1st September 2018
Doors and bar open 7pm, film starts 8pm
We start our 11th Season with a special event: a screening of wildlife filmmaker Ian McCarthy's award-winning documentary Wild Cornwall: Out On The Edge.
The film showcases Cornwall's 'wild heart': the dramatic lives of many species including breeding seabirds and peregrine falcons on the cliffs, dolphins, seals and basking sharks in the ocean, and bats and otters hunting in the streams which flow from moor to sea.
Wild Cornwall won a prestigious Silver Dolphin Award at Cannes.
Ian McCarthy is an EMMY and BAFTA award-winning wildlife photographer with a reputation as one of the UK's finest filmmakers, documenting spectacular natural scenes all over the world.
He has been behind the lens of some of David Attenborough's biggest landmark nature series and this personal account shows Cornwall's wildlife as never seen before. Over the last 35 years, Ian has travelled to some of the wildest corners of the world filming for the BBC Natural History Unit, but his home is Cornwall and he has brought a lifetime's experience to make a film about the place he knows and loves.
"Cornwall with its long and rugged coast, high rocky cliffs, surf-battered beaches, sheltered inlets and tree-lined estuaries has a unique wild beauty. This is a film about the wildlife which lives out on the edge where land, sea, and sky meet." Ian McCarthy
