About this film

In ancient Greek mythology Arcadia was an idealised rustic land, a refuge from strife and trouble within a more simplified world of pastoral beauty. The modern day Arcadia we observe within this film is a hunting estate deep within the barren Flow Country of the Northern Highlands. This landscape has changed little for thousands of years but is now under threat from a modern technology which is radically altering these northern flatlands and challenges the very existence of the estate. The Thrumster Estate will be adversely affected by an intended development of 300-foot wind turbines on a neighbouring strip of land. Their income from falconry and other forms of game hunt will be decimated and the estate could go into serious decline. A very visual and fitting protest is planned however.
