Presented by Eden Project at CAST, Flecha Selvagem / Wild Arrows is a seven-part series of short films by Brazilian collective Selvagem.

Selvagem are an intersectional indigenous-led collective whose work is centered around creationism and re-enchantment, exploring different ways of knowing and listening, and connecting the dots between knowledge, activism, creativity and culture change. Each film in the Wild Arrows series is composed of a series of composite images from diverse indigenous, artistic and scientific archives, interwoven with hand drawn animation and connected by a spoken narrative.

The Wild Arrows series is intended as a new way to open up questions and pluriversal narratives. The video works, along with downloadable notebooks, are provided as a free resource for schools, universities, cultural institutions and the wider public.

The Eden Project has partnered with CAST to present a programme of films exploring humankind’s relationship to nature as part of their exhibition Super Natural.
