Wild Hope documentary

December 14, 2018

Wild Hope is a short documentary by Suez Jacobson, Professor Emerita, Regis College, and Dave Devine, Digital Content Project Manager, DML. Wild Hope tells the story of our deep spiritual connection to the natural world, a connection that has the power to rewire our brains and change how we should think and act toward a world needing our care. The documentary combines personal experiences and scientific evidence to illustrate the need to confront climate change.

Wild Hope is available to view online. You can learn more about Dr. Jacobson and the film on the Wild Hope website. It has been entered in film festivals and was just selected by the Impact Docs Awards.
