Strule Arts Centre hosts Doug Allan, the man behind the lens of Blue Planet.
After a sell-out Scottish run in Autumn 2021, Doug Allan brings his critically acclaimed brand-new tour to Ireland. Doug looks back over his successes and setbacks during 35 years of natural history film making. Part retrospective, the show is also Doug’s perspective on climate change and its impacts on theworld’s wild places. What change of emphasis and direction should we now be incorporating in wildlife films?
“There are big days when animals behave spectacularly right in front of your lens.
And other quieter times when a deeper understanding reveals itself, a new insight
into the environment and what’s alive there. I’ll be talking about these moments of
truth and how they’re the biggest privilege of a wildlife cameraperson.” Doug Allan
“I’ve always balanced optimism with reality but the latest world climate report lays
bare the need for radical, urgent action. There are solutions, and I want to talk
about them. They’re all challenging, some are scary and depend on us making
deep changes to how we live. The planet’s at a crossroads and we’re at the wheel.
The next few years are going to be exciting.” Doug Allan
