It was a chance run-in at a remote Argentinian climbing village in 1991 that changed the life of Kristin McDivitt forever. Though she’d met the infamous Doug Tompkins years prior – he had founded The North Face and Esprit while Kris worked alongside Yvon Chouinard to grow Patagonia – they shared a connection that quickly blossomed into a lifelong romance and partnership. Together, they founded Tompkins Conservation, their sights set on preserving some of the last truly wild land on the planet.

From Oscar®-winning filmmakers Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, WILD LIFE is a sweeping portrait of a conservationist who never stopped evolving and of those who shaped her on a journey to become a global leader of conservation and wildlife preservation. From the epic climbing trips of Doug, Yvon Chouinard and the pioneers of a new kind of outdoor lifestyle to the heated controversy brewing in South America as two Americans purchased local land to a love story as wild as the terrain it unfolded on, the film prompts audiences to ask themselves – what makes life worth living?
