Wild Things spends a year on the front line of environmental action in Australia.
Armed only with mobiles phones, this growing army of ecowarriors will do whatever it takes to save their futures from the ravages of climate change. From chaining themselves to coal trains, sitting high in the canopy of a threatened rain forest or locking onto bulldozers, their non-violent tactics are designed to generate mass action with one finger tap. Against a backdrop of bush fires and drought, we witness how today’s environmentalists are making a difference and explore connections with the past through the untold stories of previous campaigns. Surprisingly the methods of old still have currency when a groundswell of schoolkids inspired by the actions of 16-year old Swedish student Greta Thunberg say, 'change is coming' and call a national strike demanding action against global warming.
