Wild Amsterdam is a wildlife feature film with a difference; it explores one of Europe’s most vibrant and dynamic cities through the eyes of its wilder inhabitants.
A city is not just for people. In fact to a host of wildlife, the streets, canals and buildings of brick, glass and steel make a home as rich and attractive as a pristine wilderness. And Amsterdam, with its reputation for nurturing its green spaces makes a perfect stage for exploring the deep and often humorous bond between people and animals.
Narrated by a wily city cat, Wild Amsterdam provides a unique and upbeat exploration of the city’s wilder side, setting its world famed historic canal ring and harbour areas in a new light — as a diverse natural habitat, supporting a wide range of animals, birds and fish. On his daily wanderings through the city, the cat makes an ideal offbeat city.
The films showcases Amsterdam in all its many moods – from rare quiet moments at dawn, through the bustle of midday to the more hipper tones the city takes on at nightfall. The cat’s escapades introduce us to the lesser known worlds of its wildlife and the challenges they face. Just like the human city dwellers, they go out each day in search of a meal, a mate and a home safe and sound enough in which to raise their young.Regie:
