On the Wild Side is a feature-length documentary aiming to develop several themes related to different types of hunting including, but not limited to, trophy, sport, and subsistence hunting. This film is the first of its kind.
On The Wild Side will bring viewers on a journey around the world to meet people carrying on work against hunting. The film will show different approaches that the anti-hunting movement uses to defend animals. Anti-poaching entities, hunt saboteur, direct action organizations, educational groups, and single individuals as well will be highlighted, in addition to local laws and law enforcement branches that are dedicated to monitor hunting and address poaching.
Journalists and academics will offer their points of view on the matter, helping viewers understand the problems of hunting in depth. The documentary will investigate and expose the effects that hunting has on local ecosystems, wildlife populations, endangered species and will explore which are the most victimized, whether those animals assaulted are creatures from land, sea, or air.
On the Wild Side will attempt to analyze what drives people to kill for entertainment or hobby. Additionally, we will bring to light the power that hunting lobbies have on lawmakers and the media. We will show how their propaganda helps to create in the general public an acceptance of hunting, and an unfounded fear of predators.
The goal of this documentary is to educate people about the realities of hunting and to act as a catalyst towards the eventual end of hunting. It will also inspire people to take a position against hunting and help the viewers to have the knowledge of what they can do to stand themselves, On The Wild Side.
While cataloguing material for the post production phase of On The Wild Side, we came across this audio segment. We realised that without video accompanying it, viewers wouldn't have full context about where it came from and what it is.
We decided to share a 40 seconds extract.
