The Meaning of Wild is a half hour documentary film that takes viewers on a journey through one of the planet's wildest landscapes, the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska.
The film follows wildlife cmeramaqn Ben Hamilton as he travels by boat, plane, kayak and foot to capture and share the true value of Wilderness. Along the journey, Ben encounters bears, calving glaciers, ancient forests and harsh seas, but it's the characters he meets along the way that bring true insight to his mission.

Ultimately, the film celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act and seeks to share these national treasures and inspire the next generation of wilderness advocates.
