The Wonder

About the film

“Nature and the beauty of the wilderness is far far greater than us.” ‘The Wonder’ is a reflective journey exploring the human sense of awe and wonder amidst the landscape and wildlife of Kenya. This film follows the story of NinianLowis, a safari guide who has spent much of his life amongst the wilderness of Africa - surrounded by rich savannah, mountains, forests, deserts and the extraordinary creatures that reside within these very landscapes. The story revolves around his reflections of how nature helped overcome a sense of purposelessness during his youth, and how he came to realize that a sense of solitude and deep exposure to wild environments had the ability to awaken his senses.
