Wild Hope

Wild hope – that's what we need. 

Hi, I'm Suez Jacobson, executive producer of Wild Hope asking you to help us spread the Wild Hope.

Wild Hope, a  feature-length documentary film about the power of nature, turns the standard argument that economic growth is the answer to our problems on its head. It shows us that nature is not an input to production, but a catalyst for change. Nature's transformative power fills our longings, rewires our brains to "unself" in an age of selfies, and motivates us to behave differently.

Our trailer, which you can watch using the link above, introduces you to the powerful voices  of Wild Hope – internationally recognized activists, academics, and journalists whom you can meet at our website.  wildhopefilm.com 

We’re so close – we've raised 80% of what need and are now in the final stages of editing.  We need your generosity to get us to the finish line. Give what you can, and please, share Wild Hope’s story with everyone you know.

Thank you! We’re wildly grateful for your support and the support of  our major donors, Great Old Broads for Wilderness (greatoldbroads.org) and Ken and Erica Gregory.

Special thanks to  Havey Pro Cinema for getting Wild Hope off the ground and to Dave Devine and Regis University's Dayton Memorial Library for keeping Wild Hope alive.
