There Is A Place On Earth is a feature-length documentary exploring the role of artists in wilderness conservation.
Dutch Filmmaker Ellen van den Honert takes us on a beautiful and poetic journey around the world where we meet artists/conservationists who share extraordinary creative work and a commitment to the environment.
A musician and artist herself, Ellen asks why and how creative work can become a vital pathway to wilderness conservation.
Realizing that art can ignite our own emotional and intuitive connection to the wild, her curiosity takes us to meet other artists from diverse disciplines who are also inspired by nature and wildness in their work.
From Harvey Locke, whose photography and writings have played a critical role in the Yellowstone To Yukon Conservation Initiative, to acclaimed South African poet Ian McCallum whose poem’s connecting readers to their own sense of wildness, to multi-media environmental artist Sibylle Szaggars Redford who collaborates with the elements and a diversity of performers to create a living art piece.
Along with the work of many other visionaries and compelling artists shown, viewers are treated to an experience that can open up their own sense of the wild – and the necessity to protect it.
