Promoted by KZN non-profit, environmental education organization, Wilderness Leadership School, There Is A Place On Earth is a feature-length documentary exploring the role of artists in wilderness conservation.

Dutch Filmmaker Ellen van den Honert takes us on a beautiful and poetic journey around the world where we meet artists/ conservationists who share extraordinary creative work and a commitment to the environment. In the process we experience a unique, intuitive connection to the wild – and the necessity to protect it.
