Painfully honest live radio
A year ago, director Pol Heyvaert, musician Jakob Ampe (The Germans) and the British enfant terrible Kim Noble set to work in Norfolk (UK). They visited teenagers and young singer-songwriters to find out what kind of impact music had on their lives. This resulted in the show ‘Wild Life’, which premiered at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival in 2016. The trio drew upon the lives of these young people, on the songs they wrote and the scientific explanations of how the brains of teenagers work.
For ‘Wild Life FM’, the three are working together with British and local musical talents. A funny, beautiful and painfully honest live radio show. Self-written songs and soundbites from daily life provide the setting in which the makers reveal striking truths. What does it mean to be young? What complexities twist and turn in the minds of teenagers? And what is the impact of (mostly sad) music on their lives?
A funny, beautiful and painfully honest live radio show. When all is done and dusted you can relive the ‘Wild Life FM’ evenings in a series of podcasts that will become available online. Here’s a taster.
