Wild Hope

Directors:
Suez Jacobson and Dave Devine 
Country of Origin: United States
2018

Flickering points of light spilling out of the sky’s black bowl. The barely audible skitter of insects in the shadows of towering sandstone cliffs. The wonder of a delicate spider web. Wild Hope tells the story of our deep spiritual connection to the natural world, a connection that has the power to rewire our brains, take us back to our deepest roots, and change how we think and act in a world that needs our care.

This short documentary film combines personal story, research, science, and passion in a unique mix to inspire viewers to protect wild ecosystems against an unrelenting materialistic culture that’s producing social malaise and an uninhabitable planet.
