Storyline

People's associations with flora goes back a long way, taking us back to our own roots as well as to new ways of life and creative potential that reveal themselves as we deal with plants. 'Wild Plants' is a film that follows these clues and takes us to urban gardens in Detroit, to Native American philosopher Milo Yellow Hair in Wounded Knee, to the wild plantations of Zurich's legendary 'Guerilla Gardener' Maurice Maggi, and to the innovative horticulture cooperative 'Les Jardins de Cocagne' in Geneva.

Really beatifully shot, patient, relaxing stuff.
9 November 2018 | by digs5446See all my reviews

The cover/poster makes this looks like a screwball comedy but it's a deeply meditative, ethereal documentary. At first I was like "OK here we go with the 5 minutes of silent faces looking into the camera cliche", but as it got going I was transfixed. Great sound design between interviews/sections.
