Agricultural researcher Dr. Martin Lowery is trekking through a dense forest with unusually fertile soil, searching for a few colleagues swallowed by the foliage. The deeper he goes and the farther he advances, the further he leaves reality behind and the stronger his suspicion becomes that there is something lurking in these woods, in its soil. In the Earth is an unorthodox mix of folk horror and state-of-the-art technology rendered into a psycho trip oscillating between abject terror, excess, and transcendence.

Ben Wheatley
Wheatley, Ben has long established himself as a distinct voice in British cinema. After his feature debut Down Terrace and the thriller Kill List (SLASH 2011), he made the black comedy Sightseers, which premiered at Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival 2012. He went on to make the historical thriller A Field in England (SLASH 2013), the dystopic High-Rise, and the gangster actioner Free Fire. A frequent collaborator of his is Amy Jump, who wrote and coedited five of his works. 2020 saw the release of Ben’s remake of Rebecca, starring Lily James and Armie Hammer. Upcoming projects include The Meg 2.
