Cornwall like it’s never been filmed before
A film covering a year in the life of wild Cornwall, by the man behind some of David Attenborough’s biggest moments makes it’s UK Premiere in Falmouth next month. The film ‘Wild Cornwall – Out on the Edge’ by Ian McCarthy won a prestigious Silver Dolphin Award at Cannes.
The film follows the turning of the year in Cornwall – ‘one of the most beautiful and dramatic places in Europe’. It 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.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust will be hosting the UK premiere at the Poly Arts Centre, Falmouth on Thursday 8th February.
Ian McCarthy is a long-term supporter of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, inspiring people’s interest in nature and having featured in their successful ‘My Wild Life’ campaign. Over the years Ian has won EMMY and BAFTA awards and has 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 traveled to some of the wildest corners of the world filming wildlife for the BBC Natural History Unit. But his home is Cornwall and he has brought a lifetime’s experience to make a film about a place he knows and loves.
Ian McCarthy says,
“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 lives out on the edge where land, sea, and sky meet.”
