A lovely exploration of human nature and society, this film takes us into an unusual outdoor nursery. With the woods as their classroom and playground, a group of small children explore their surroundings and their relationships with each other in a remarkably free and unfettered environment. Through the children’s imaginative activities and games we can see flashes of their personal and collective development, a striking example of playing as learning. With a subtle observational approach, Into the Middle of Nowhere quietly unfolds into a celebration of childhood and a reminder of the preciousness of the imagination.
