Films at The Forum: WILD LIFE

The Forum is pleased to present Films at The Forum, our latest public program bringing free movie screenings to The Forum on a monthly basis. This April, in honor of Earth Day, The Forum and Columbia Climate School are partnering to present WILD LIFE, the 2023 National Geographic Documentary Film from Oscar-winning filmmakers Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Chai Vasarhelyi.

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 journey to effect the largest private land donation in history.
