Craig Foster

(Un)scripted: Amphibious Soul

– Wye Stage

A decade ago, feeling exhausted and empty, Oscar-winning filmmaker Craig Foster decided to return to his birthplace – the Cape of Good Hope – and dive into the great African Sea forest each day. His daily oceanic adventures not only helped him ‘rewild’, but helped him come to see his own ‘amphibious soul’ as a powerful metaphor for the human condition. He discusses how he rediscovered this deep connection to his animal self, as well as sharing how we can all nurture our individual wildness, tap into our empathy and deepen our love for all living things. Foster’s Netflix documentary My Octopus Teacher is about his unlikely friendship with a Common Octopus.
