Highway Wilding sets out to convince us that roads as we know them are a serious problem and make a case for doing something smarter, and achieves both beyond all doubt. Better yet, it deepens into the long-distance lives of animals and evokes that powerful sense of nature as a world operating outside of our daily understandings. Everyone will have their own moment where the film crosses over from interesting to urgent; for me, it was the story of a transplanted lynx that walked over 1500 kilometres home from America. Beautiful."
