THE BOZEMAN DOC SERIES
Sunday, March 26th, 7:00pm
The Emerson Cultural Center
On Sunday, March 26th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the new documentary from Oscar winning directors Jimmy Chin and E. Chai Vasarhelyi, Wild Life.
Wild Life follows conservationist Kris Tompkins on an epic, decades-spanning love story as wild as the landscapes she dedicated her life to protecting. After falling in love in mid-life, Kris and the outdoorsman and entrepreneur Doug Tompkins left behind the world of the massively successful outdoor brands they’d helped pioneer: Patagonia, The North Face, and Esprit, and turned their attention to a visionary effort to create National Parks throughout Chile and Argentina. Wild Life chronicles the highs and lows of their remarkable journey and their path to completing the largest private land donation in history.
Chin and Vasarhelyi won an Oscar for their 2018 documentary Free Solo. Their other films include the Sundance award winning Meru, and the opening night film of our seventh season, The Rescue.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films. The series will continue every other Thursday through April, 2023. Masks are now optional in the theater.
