HIKE THE DIVIDE: A CONVERSATION ABOUT CLIMATE ACTION ON THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL

Directed by Connor DeVane

US, 1 hr 22 mins, PNW filmmaker

Self-described “jaded millennial” Connor DeVane, treks 2,700 miles from Canada to Mexico on the CDT as he seeks hope in the face of climate breakdown. A physical journey through environments both harsh and breathtakingly beautiful, this film shares the stories of the community activists and problem solvers working on a spectrum of approaches to climate action, including grassroots community organizing, land regeneration to store CO2 in soil, non-violent civil disobedience and more.

Connor's journey intersects with a host of diverse and powerful voices united in not only picking us up off the floor, but also to shoving us out the door to build a better future.
