PROJECT WILD THING is a documentary about the decreasing level of connection between children and Nature in modern society. Filmmaker David Bond appoints himself as 'Nature's Marketing Director' in a campaign to sell its benefits to children and their parents.

Language

There is infrequent use of mild bad language (eg 'shit'). At one point a man says that, if his campaign speech is not effective, "Then I'm screwed".

Sex

The film contains some verbal sex references. For example, during a discussion about why parents are so nervous about letting their children play outside, it is noted that "We start believing that around every corner there's a paedophile". There are also some written references to a 'pole dancer' and a 'drunken fumble' seen in quotations from newspaper headlines.

There are some brief images from a videogame showing guns being fired, but there is no sight of bloody injury.

Cuts information

The distributor chose to fully obscure one use of strong language in order to achieve a PG classification. This cut was made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. A 12A classification without cuts was available.
