THE DEER DIVIDE: ABOUT THE FILM

The Deer Divide Posterv6.jpg

Located just off the coast of southern California, Catalina Island is a beautiful destination full of beach-front restaurants, expansive hiking trails, and a vast array of wildlife and endemic vegetation.

 

The Catalina Island Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the island's natural habit. When they proposed a plan to eradicate the invasive mule deer from the island by using sharpshooters in helicopters, local activists began to protest the plan, calling it unnecessary and inhumane.

The film premiered at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, Marion Knott Studios on May 8th, 2024.

 

Directed by Nate Markquart and Chloe Prahl.

Produced by Peter Yinzhi Pan and Angel Mendoza.
