Telluride at Dartmouth


September 28, 2022

This event occurred as part of the 22/23 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

Ravishing landscape and wildlife imagery frame this taut story of two people who are living, in every conceivable sense, on the edge.

22/23 Hop Film

Harry, a British Afghan war vet crippled by depression and PTSD, arrives at an animal rescue program deep in the Peruvian jungle, finding solace while nurturing an orphaned baby ocelot. He's assisted by the project's creator Samantha—a brilliant, academically trained conservationist with her own anguished family history. As Harry slowly recovers, he finds the jungle a brutal proving ground, with poachers, clear-cutters and non-human predators while loneliness stalks his psyche. Harry needs the animals as desperately as the animals need him, and even they may not be enough. With ravishing landscape, wildlife imagery and a taut story, directors Trevor Beck Frost and Melissa Lesh have created something more impressive: a compelling and sometimes harrowing psychological documentary of two people who are living–in every conceivable sense–on the edge.
