Driven to the edge by the loss of her beloved mother, the dissolution of her marriage and a headlong dive into self-destructive behaviour, Cheryl Strayed made a decision to halt her downward spiral and put her life back together again. With no outdoors experience, a heavy backpack and little else to go on but her own will, Cheryl set out alone to hike the Pacific Crest Trail – one of the country's longest and toughest through-trails.
The film is based on the book Wild: Lost and Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. 
“I have chosen Wild in this film programme, as an inspiring film of how a female hiker encounters challenging landscapes whilst walking the Pacific Crest Trail. The film was an inspiration when making 47˚C and Pseudotachylyte.” Heidi Morstang

Heidi Morstang: Field Observations

11 February – 8 April 2023
Selected works that are an observation of a fragile natural environment, and the increasing changes in the climate that has developed into a global emergency. Through photography and film, landscape is the principal line of inquiry with the attempt to see various ways humans intervene with and in it.
Heidi is Associate Professor in Photography at University of Plymouth.
