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 midlife, 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 via their nonprofit Tompkins Conservation. Wild Life chronicles the highs and lows of their journey to affect the largest private land donation in history.

LAist's John Horn will have a Q&A with conservationist Kris Tompkins and filmmaker Jimmy Chin after the screening.

Where: Landmark Theatres Pasadena, 673 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena
When: Monday, April 17th at 7:00 p.m.

RSVP HERE to attend the screening.
