WILD AMSTERDAM is a wildlife feature film with a difference — it explores one of Europe’s most vibrant and dynamic cities through the eyes of its wilder inhabitants. A city is not just for people. In fact to a host of wildlife, the streets, canals and buildings of brick, glass and steel make a home as rich and attractive as a pristine wilderness. And Amsterdam, with its reputation for nurturing its green spaces makes a perfect stage for exploring the deep and often humorous bond between people and animals. A grey heron grabbing a meal at a market fish stall, or a brown rat raising its young in a burrow under a pavement slab is as wild and extraordinary as the hawksbill turtle or giant panda.
