The Restless Year
Using the revolutionary time-lapse photography developed for The Private Life of Plants, The Restless Year shows a beautiful portrait of the changing seasons in England’s Cotswolds countryside.
The fifty-five minute film provides a unique insight into the variable nature of the British countryside as toadstools rapidly appear, a vegetable patch springs into life and agricultural land swaps its uses in the blink of an eye.
Stunning cinematography from wildlife cameraman Tim Shepherd charts the rhythms and cycles of nature, detailing the effect the changing seasons have on a wealth of insect, mammal and bird life. Filming from the first daffodils of spring to the winter’s thick frost, The Restless Year is a glowing tribute to Britain’s ‘green and pleasant’ land.
