On Thursday, December 15th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series continues with the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, Wildcat.

Wildcat follows the emotional and inspiring story of a young veteran (Harry Turner) on his journey into the Amazon. Once there, he meets a young woman (Samantha Zwicker) running a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center, and his life finds new meaning as he is entrusted with the life of an orphaned baby ocelot. What was meant to be an attempt to escape from life turns out to be an unexpected journey of love, discovery, and healing.

Wildcat world-premiered this fall at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival.

“A riveting journey into the wild. The South American ocelot at the center of this tale of animal rescue and liberation will attract audiences, but the human characters in this saga hold at least as much appeal…[it’s] a wildlife doc full of human feeling.” The Hollywood Reporter

“Along with supplying ravishing landscape and wildlife imagery and a taut story, producer-directors Trevor Beck Frost and Melissa Lesh have created something more impressive: a compelling and sometimes harrowing psychological documentary of two people who are living, in every conceivable sense, on the edge.” Telluride Film Festival 

“A documentary film that provides a window into a rarely seen, often misunderstood world of extraordinary beauty, lush biodiversity and deep emotion. Wildcat explores the redemptive power of nature and wildlife through the eyes of three singular beings.” Bainbridge Currents

This film is rated R for language and some disturbing scenes.

We had originally planned a silent auction event for December 15th, but it has been postponed until spring. This screening will not be preceded by a reception in the lobby. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films. The series will continue every other Thursday through April, 2023. Masks are now optional in the theater.
