Wild Life


From Oscar-winning filmmakers Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (Free Solo) comes the inspiring story of conservationist, adventurer, and entrepreneur Kristine Tompkins. After founding global outdoor and fashion clothing brands, Kristine and her husband Doug Tompkins abandon their corporate lives for a profound adventure in the wilderness of Chile. Embarking upon a deep love affair with each other and with their newly adopted country, they eventually purchase over a million acres of land with the goal of environmental preservation. Following Doug’s tragic death, Kristine struggles with grief, but steps into the role of conservationist and iconoclast, creating seven pristine national parks across Patagonia.
