“The Dark Divide delivers a raw story of self-discovery, perseverance, and healing – all incredibly relevant topics within our current societal climate. The film perfectly portrays the restorative powers the outdoors can provide our mind, body, and spirit, while blending drama with a mix of slight comedic relief. It’s sure to connect with those who have been exploring the outdoors for many years, as well as those who have discovered the simple power of being outside during a tumultuous 2020.” – Lauren King, Merrell Sr. Marketing Manager
The Dark Divide is based on the true story of renowned butterfly expert Dr. Robert Pyle’s (David Cross) perilous 1995 journey across one of America’s largest undeveloped wildlands. At the urging of his dying wife Thea (Debra Messing), the shy author finds himself in over his head on an epic, life-changing expedition through Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest in search of new species of butterflies. Over the course of his six-week adventure Pyle battles self-doubt, the grueling trail, and the people and creatures who call this forest home. And, somewhere deep in the heart of The Dark Divide, he makes a discovery that challenges everything he knows about the natural world. With David Koechner, Cameron Esposito, Gary Farmer, and Patterson Hood. Music by The Avett Brothers, Giants in the Trees with Krist Novoselić, The National Reserve, Samantha Crain, Bombadil, and more.
