A provocative and poetic new film exploring our relationship with the land.

Directed by BAFTA-winning director Paul Wright, Arcadia is a sensory journey into the beauty and brutality, magic and madness of our changing relationship with land and each other. The film combines over 100 years of archive film with a grand,
expressive new score by Adrian Utley of Portishead and Will Gregory of Goldfrapp.
