Organized Wildness follows Denmark’s largest ever rewilding project.The sixth mass extinction is happening right now, and 80% of all species in Denmark have been exterminated in the last 20 years – with agriculture covering most of the land, wild nature is hard to find. Now it is time to push biodiversity in the right direction by bringing Hammer Hills in northern Jutland back to its original natural state. We follow the ambitious project from the first meetings and until the radical changes have been completed. Can humans work together to restore nature? And ultimately, how wild do we actually want nature to be?
The film will be preceded by a short film from our Special Topic of the year: Climate Justice: Perspectives and Solutions from the Global South
For Every Girl, A Forest

A decade ago, the village of Piplantri, India, was barren, denuded by open-pit mines. But a community promise to plant 111 trees for every newborn girl has led to mass reforestation and a promising future for girls. In return for the trees planted, each girl is promised education and security in a region where historical prejudice against infant girls too often led to infanticide.
