A young girl dreams that the answers to her problems are in the land around her. We follow her through the seasons: the once idyllic landscapes of spring; into the wild woods in summer; to autumn where darker times descend and on to the harsh brutality of winter.
A mash-up of archive material from the last 100 years that examines the rich, strange history of the British countryside and riffs on our relationship with the changing landscape. Arcadia uses found sound and has a specially composed score by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), plus music from the likes of Anne Briggs.
