National Geographic has announced a new feature documentary called “Tompkins”, which will tell the story of conservationist Kristine Tompkins.
One day in 1991, Doug Tompkins walked into a restaurant in El Calafate, Argentina, and changed the life of Kristine McDivitt forever. Kristine and Doug had met before, but this time their meeting instantly sparked an intense connection, leading to a lifelong romance and partnership. She became Kristine Tompkins, and together they moved to a remote area of southern Chile on a mission to save the world.
The feature documentary is an intimate portrait of conservationist and former CEO of Patagonia, Inc., Kristine Tompkins, and the organization that she and Doug founded together, Tompkins Conservation. Exploring Kristine and Doug’s inspiring love story, as well as the national parks throughout Chile and Argentina that they helped create together, the film illustrates their incredible journey. It compels audiences to care about conservation and consider: What are you willing to live for?
It will be produced and directed by E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin. It will be produced by Anna Barnes and Bob Eisenhardt. National Geographic Documentary Films, Carolyn Bernstein and Ryan Harrington are executive producers
No release date for this documentary has been announced.
