Eglantine is an intimate and vivid account of a young girl’s real and fantastical adventure in a remote forest one evening. It’s not only a loving homage to classic children’s films such as Ray Ashley’s Little Fugitive, Jean Renoir’s The River and Albert Lamorisse’s The Red Balloon, but draws from nature studies of the past, such as Mary Field’s Secrets of Nature series. Shot on 35mm in various locations around Scotland, this film draws inspiration from a range of cinematic movements as well as wildlife documentaries to produce a lyrical and sensual portrait of a child’s eye perspective on the natural world.
