Bogman Palmjaguar is a portrait of a man who after a series of disturbing events became distrustful of people and withdrew into nature. Bogman describes himself as 'the hidden cat' and 'wild outlaw of paradise' and is
fighting against a diagnosis that brands him as a 'paranoid schizophrenic'.
The film was shot across two visits to Bogman's home in a remote village in the north of Scotland. In which Bogman passionately campaigns for the threatened habitat of Scotland's Flow Country; a wilderness made of blanket bogs and peatlands that houses a unique diversity of wildlife. However the peatlands also became a hide-out, when Bogman fled attempts to section him.
The film is a reconciliation of the young conservationist with his older self; isolated and withdrawn from society.
