92 Miles | A Migration Story

Two years into studying Wyomings wild mule deer, researcher Patrick Rodgers life was thrown into turmoil. Through the sudden loss of his best friend and father to cancer, Patrick was stripped of the person who taught him how to appreciate our public lands. The healing process has been a long migration: a journey facilitated by finding solace in the wild with a pair of ultra running shoes. Long distance running helps Pat to heal. The transformative 90+ mile backcountry run is a gripping adventure following one of Wyomings longest migration corridors for mule deer.

Director Statement

This film is so much more than a simple wildlife migration story told through the act of running. It is a film about transformation brought fourth by the universal bond of suffering. This bond is revealed as the common thread which links us all together as human beings. It's in our emotion or physical suffering that we are strengthened by the need to move to a better place. We are lifted up by our community. And it's through that process that we are able to overcome our deep darkness within.
