A family camping trip becomes an all-night badger hunt as the film follows a young girl’s fantastical adventure in a remote forest.

The film is an intimate and vivid account of a young girl’s real and fantastical adventure in a remote forest one evening. It is an artist’s loving homage to classic children’s films such as Ray Ashley’s Little Fugitive, Jean Renior’s The River and Albert Lamorisse’s The Red Balloon. Eglantine also draws upon nature studies of the past, such as Mary Field’s Secrets of Nature series.

Shot on 35mm in various locations around Scotland, Salmon draws inspiration from a range of cinematic movements as well as wildlife documentaries to produce a lyrical and sensual portrait of a child’s eye perspective on the natural world.
