Pervasive Media Studio residents Compass Presents invite you on a hunt to discover the wilder side of South Bristol with action packed challenges (set in the wild South of the River, or in the comfort of your own home) before a free watchalong of the critically acclaimed film Hunt For The Wilderpeople.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a hilarious coming-of-age comedy adventure written and directed by Taika Waititi. It follows Ricky - a foster kid who triggers a massive manhunt when he escapes to the New Zealand bush. When events threaten to return Ricky into care, he bounds off into the bush with his dog Tupac. His 'Uncle' Hec finds him, but a series of disasters keep the mismatched duo trekking in the wilderness for months, and a national manhunt involving bounty hunters, the police and the army - ensues...
Wise, generous and very, very funny, the film explores belonging, love, survival and adulthood – with sensitivity, joy and pure comedy.
To make this event extra special Compass Presents have created a set of optional challenges for you to complete before the event. From a bird spotting challenge, to building a den – there are seven themed quests to complete, each designed to connect you to nature, get you exploring your area, and generally GOING WILD. Plus, the first 25 people to complete all the challenges will win a box of ‘watch along’ themed goodies to enjoy on the night.
Getting involved is easy - simply sign up to take part and Compass will email you the full instructions for the challenges. You’ll then have until Sat 10 April to complete the challenges and send them the evidence! Find out more about the event and how to get involved on the Compass Presents website.
