THAT’S WILD
Dir.: Michiel Thomas | 63 min | 2020 | Feature Documentary | USA
Growing up in Atlanta can be hard as highlighted by three real-life protagonists in That’s Wild. Sixteen-year-old Clifford tries to fill the void of his incarcerated father, 13-year-old Ahmani struggles with the aftermath of a homeless childhood, and 13-year-old Nicholas grapples with episodes of depression. When the boys sign up for the after-school program Wilderness Works, they quickly begin to unpack the negative pressures that surround them in their day-to-day lives.
