On the Wild Side (2019)
Directed by Giacomo Giorgi, 85 mins
All over the world, humans continue to view the hunting of animals as a hobby. No longer a fundamental tool for survival, the hunting of wolves, rhinos, birds, foxes and many other species is now more for entertainment, and damages the fragile wildlife on which we depend on to survive.
On The Wild Side unites the global anti-hunting movement and sheds light on the psychology of hunting, and what drives people to kill for entertainment or sport.
Featuring interviews with activists, politicians and organisations around the world, it investigates and exposes the effects that hunting has on local ecosystems, wildlife populations, and endangered species, and shows how hunt saboteurs, mobile veterinary clinics and political lobbyists are integral to conserving our planet’s wildlife.
The panel discussion after the screening was moderated by Alice Hawryszkiewycz, Global Health Film Advisory Board member; Alice was in discussion with On the Wild Side director Giacomo Giorgi, Amaroq Weiss from the Center for Biological Diversity, USA, and Steve from the UK Hunt Saboteurs Association.
