IWFF Double Feature
The New Urban Jungle + My Garden of a Thousand Bees
The New Urban Jungle: A watercolour illustrated stop-frame animation outlining the plight of UK wildlife and some simple tips on how we can support it urban areas, and our local patch - whatever that may look like! From a garden to an old boot, anyone can help their local wildlife. Directed by Lauren Cook.
My Garden of a Thousand Bees: A veteran wildlife cameraman is bee-obsessed. Seeking refuge from the pandemic in a small city garden he is filming the wild bees that live there with mind-blowing results. From giant bumblebees to scissor bees the size of a mosquito, he has seen over 60 species of bee. But more importantly, he is developing a close relationship with an individual bee he follows through its entire life. Directed by David Allen. Produced by Gaby Bastyra.
Both films sponsored by Caras Nursery. The April 23 screening will be held in the Roxy Garden.
