Four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right) is set to star in Oscar®-winning duo Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin’s narrative directorial debut. The project is based on Diana Nyad’s best-selling autobiography Find A Way, which follows the remarkable true story of the swimmer who, at age 64, assisted by her best friend and crew of 35 dedicated supporters, defied the odds to become the first person to complete the 110-mile journey from Cuba to Florida, through poisonous jellyfish and shark-infested waters. Mad Chance and Black Bear Pictures developed and will produce.
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 and compels audiences to care about conservation and consider: What are you willing to live for?
