Honoring our Veterans
Thank you to everyone who attended our 2023 event!
Each year, Mountainfilm on Tour – Savannah hosts a special screening of documentary films in honor of Veterans Day where attendees enjoy food, drink, and fascinating documentary films.
The headliner for our 10th Annual Honoring Our Veterans event was the feature-length film Wild Life, which was followed by a live Q&A with Doug Tompkins’ friend and fellow kayaker, Lorenzo Alvarez.
2023 | USA
Directors: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Jimmy Chin
From Oscar-winning filmmakers Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, 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.
