Winner of the Golden Gate Award for "Best Short Documentary" at the 2011 San Francisco International Film Festival.
INTO THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE celebrates the uniqueness of childhood and the nonexistence of limits to a child’s imagination. In an outdoor nursery in the woods, children create their own individually constructed worlds and can test out the boundaries of reality. The environment allows them to explore everything through their own experience and imagination while also bringing to the foreground their personal and collective development. The woods become the place where the normal rules and regulations of society come to a halt and where the children transform the surroundings with their play. The beauty and the challenges of growing up are already hinted at.

This is one of my favorite films on Fandor. It's a sublime, surprisingly affecting invocation of the vicissitudes of the child's imagination.
Smoke Bloke Land!
Adorable film. A great retreat & reminder of childhood.
Fabulous and complex; too short! Like childhood...
Precious. Weird. Beautiful. Toddlers talking like aristocrats already at that age!
OMG, I want to live again, have children, and send them to the Secret Garden Nursury in England. I love nature and only discovered backpacking, in my early 50's. Every child should be required to spend a part of their day, every day, in Nature. Where their imaginary plane can drop them in the middle of nowhere. ILG ILG ILG
