“Backyard Wilderness” will surprise and entertain viewers with the unexpected wonders of nature that are right under our noses — in our own backyards. Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, the film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife images and behavior — all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests, and moving along the forest floor and pond bottom, to reveal their inhabitants in rare and breathtaking intimacy. The film reminds us that sometimes in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things that could transform you forever — you just need to step outside. 20-minute version.
