A 42 minute film that explores one of the most threatened biodiversity hot spots in the world. In a monumental collaboration of artists, activists, and environmental organizations, this film documents the wildlife that thrives here like no other place in Southern California. Meticulously filmed over the course of five years, the film leads audiences from the ocean floor of the Santa Barbara Channel to the peaks of the jagged Santa Ynez Mountains. This wild journey crosses paths with breaching humpback whales, red-tailed hawks and elusive mountain lions. With nearly 90% of Southern California’s coast lost to development, the preservation of this coastline is the last bastion of hope for wildlife fighting to survive against a world closing in on them.
The WCFF mission is to inform, engage and inspire wildlife conservation through the power of film.
Film screened as a world premiere in 2017 at the 7th annual WCFF in New York, NY. A ten day event with over 100 documentary films with panel discussion, networking, receptions, field trips and more. Films will represent over 40 nations as in previous years, with international filmmakers in attendance.
