When we come into the world we are taught life’s lessons through imaginary tales,

juxtaposing life’s turbulences and misfortunes with stories borrowed from another universe,

creating a safe place. Coming to Wild World as adults, this safe area tends to be neglected

and lost in space - a vague memory from distant childhood. 


Yusuf’s iconic song ‘Wild World’ has spoken to a number of generations, and to my eyes

the lyrics are letters from a younger self. I strongly felt the urge to create something that

would equally be a recall to our inner child and that exact same safe place. 


Gambling and winning, loss and acceptance, war and love, are a few of the themes

that are depicted through this film, borrowing classic themes from Casablanca

to reimagine ‘Wild World’ for 2020, and celebrate the comeback of ‘Tea For The Tillerman 2.’”

Enjoy the flight!
