Discover extraordinary wonders of nature and the wildlife that calls the forest home

Opens June 2

Join a young girl named Katie as she steps outside her front door to explore the wonders of the natural world. From the top of the trees to the bottom of a pond, Katie uncovers an array of amazing wildlife in the woods behind her home. Captured by cameras mounted inside dens, nests and along the forest floor, this film reveals a hidden world that is home to wolves, birds, butterflies, frogs and so much more.

Backyard Wilderness is an SK Films Release of an Arise Media / Archipelago Films Production in Association with Reconsider.
