The Wild Nation (original French title: La Fête Sauvage) is a 1976 French wildlife documentary film directed by Frédéric Rossif. The film focuses in showing wildlife according to three main themes: love, death and dream.
Filmed at a great distance, The Wild Nation features various animals species in several locations, without any human interaction. Frédéric Rossif wanted to film the spontaneity and lack of reflection that takes part in the animals' lives.
Sometimes three narrators describe the animals and their behavior, relating them to mythology and how the animals' lives are influenced by love and death. The narrators' presence is rare, with most of the film showing the animals alone accompanied by music specially created for it.
This film begins where the documentary ends. Animals are privileged actors. Before man appeared, they filled our dreams : animals are our black memory. They remind us of the old days when we still were moving like them. I filmed a spontaneous celebration in which reflection has, for once, no part.
In 2014 the movie was restored and re-released by Zoroastre with the support of Studio Canal.
The movie soundtrack was composed by Vangelis. It was released as an album in 1976.
