Conservation versus renewable energy: an ecological battle brewing in Scotland

In Arcadia, the director David Graham Scott explores a little-heard side of the renewable energy debate, focusing on a family for whom preservation and conservation of existing natural resources are of central importance. His film is simultaneously a topical exploration of two types of ecological thought, and a picturesque portrait of a distant region of Scotland, still untouched by urban development.
