The Sudeten border area in the Broumov region (Czech Republic) is slowly being depopulated. Lack of work and poor living conditions are forcing the younger generation to leave in search of a better life. Nature is slowly taking the region back and a long-exiled predator, the wolf, is returning to the local forests and attacking defenceless sheep from local farms. On one of them lives a family of three.

Director Statement

For me, as a native of Sudetenland who, like most of my peers, decided to leave the border region, Wilding is a very personal film through which I give the viewer an insight into the minds of today's young generation of migrants. As banal as it may sound, the film was for me a punctuation mark on a chapter of my life in the Broumov region, Czech Republic, where the film is set.
