Synopsis: In 1980, David and Caroline Petersen packed all they owned into a VW bus and fled urban life for the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado. Thus began the couple’s lifelong immersion in a simple, independent existence balanced precariously between culture and nature. Accompanying David on his annual elk hunt, On the Wild Edge provides poetical inspiration for all serious hunters of personal meaning in life.
“My hope for this documentary,” says Belgian filmmaker Christopher Daley, “is that it captures the Petersens’ exemplary commitment to living honest, uncluttered lives not merely “close to nature,” but as active players in and courageous defenders of wild nature.”
