Total runtime 90min (including discussion)

Illuminating the Wilderness offers a window onto the experiences of a group of neuro-diverse artists, filmmakers, families and carers as they explore the varied terrain of Glen Affric in the Scottish Highlands. The remoteness, scale and indifference of the landscape provides a sense of freedom and belonging for the group.

Artists Ben Rivers and Margaret Salmon join the journey, which charts the pleasures and challenges of neuro-diverse responses to the landscape, with humour and tenderness.

Our post-screening discussion will consider perceptions of ‘wilderness’, experimental form and cultural inclusion.
