PLEISTOCENE PARK

In the mid 1990s, eccentric Russian scientist Sergey Zimov made the startling discovery that melting arctic permafrost threatened to release huge amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, potentially creating a feedback loop that will lead to runaway climate change. Impatient with the world’s slow reaction to this news, Zimov has a plan: to restore the Ice Age “mammoth steppe” ecosystem through a radical rewilding of the northern plains.

Seeking no one’s help and asking nobody’s permission, Zimov and his son Nikita begin gathering any large woolly beast they can get their hands on and start transporting them, by whatever low budget means they can contrive, to the most remote corner of Siberia. They call their project Pleistocene Park.

With the (almost) tireless help of his son Nikita, and set to a gloriously energetic Russian score, the determined Zimov sets out to transport eight oxen from Denmark across thousands of miles to Siberia, on a frantic and utopian mission in the service of the climate. PLEISTOCENE PARK is the adventure film of the year, starring a geophysicist genius (or madman) on a quixotic quest to save us all.
