Wild Plants **

Without going deeply into the current disconnect between humanity and mother nature, Nicolas Humbert brings us a documentary about the flora that seeds itself in fallow and abandoned land and the people who have chosen to save it and live in harmony with it. Wild Plants is a film with a lot of potential to educate and inspire, but fails to show us the value of the earth and the power of living side-by-side with it. (Sandra Gr√ľneisen-Ibarra)
