The Trouble with Nature

The Trouble with Nature

Have you ever been overwhelmed by the immensity and the devastating beauty of nature? Philosopher Edmund Burke hasn’t. But that didn’t stop him in the 18th century from penning an influential essay on the sublimity of nature. In this comical film, Burke – deep in the throes of a midlife crisis – decides to write a sequel to this essay. He embarks on an expedition to the Alps to experience nature in all its glory. But there’s one problem: Burke soon realises that living in the great outdoors is not for him…
