Titre-Wild

A documentary written and directed by

Dana Tentea & Stéphane Boitel

The Documentary

In North America, from California to Alaska, we, Dana & Stéphane, met organizations working to preserve biodiversity.

Because every day humans are depleting their resources a little more, destroying wild habitats without limit and dangerously warming their only home.

Faced with all these observations, we wanted to bear witness to the daily fights for nature protection. These battles led by women and men in all regions and for all ecosystems.

From the Mojave Desert to the arctic tundra, through the forests of the Sierra Nevada or the fjords of Alaska, 52 minutes to discover the wild beauty and the great American spaces, but also the fights for their preservation.

 

Because without biodiversity, there is no such thing as a human being.

52 minutes of initiatory road-trip to discover those who fight for the preservation of ecosystems between California and Alaska.

Dana TENTEA

Dana was born in Brasov, Romania in 1986.

She arrived in France after the fall of communism, she grew up in the Paris region and studied law in Paris.

Graduated from the Paris Court of Appeal Bar School in 2013, she practiced as a M&A lawyer for 3 years.

In 2016, she decided to leave her dress to travel the Americas in a van with Stéphane.

From her love for images is born her desire to make photography her profession. Her passion for nature leads her to make the relationship between man and nature her favorite subject.

Little by little, video became part of her work and it was natural for her to start filming her first documentary in 2019: “Wild”.
