The inspiring life and lasting impact of Doug Tompkins, entrepreneur, conservationist, and renowned adventurer, is retold in this poignant tribute documentary, on the heels of his untimely death late last year.

In December 2015, Doug Tompkins passed away after a kayaking accident in Patagonia, the land that inspired and influenced much of his life.

There is no debate that Doug Tompkins lived a remarkable life. But remarkable might be too soft a word; what he did with his years on Earth is legendary, for he left behind a legacy that will impact our planet in perpetuity.

A new film by James Q Martin and Chris Cresci honors Tompkins and details his inspiring journey. Doug Tompkins: A Wild Legacy pays tribute to a life well lived.
