Hike the Divide: A Conversation about Climate Action on the Continental Divide Trail is a feature-length, independent and not-for-profit documentary that follows jaded millennial Connor DeVane 2,700 miles from Canada to Mexico on the CDT as he seeks hope in the face of climate breakdown. The film, structured around a physical journey through environments both harsh and breathtakingly beautiful, shares the stories of the community activists and problem solvers Connor meets, marking a trail from apathy and resignation to hope and engagement.
Hike the Divide presents a spectrum of approach to climate action, including grassroots community organizing, land regeneration to store CO2 in soil, non-violent civil disobedience and more. Connor's journey reminds us what we are capable of, what we stand to lose, and how little we need to thrive; a host of diverse and powerful voices unite not only to pick us up off the floor, but also to shove us out the door to build a better future.
