Staring Down Fate


Run time: 101 minutes 40 seconds
Synopsis: Staring Down Fate is a film about 7.4 billion people and our relationship with nature, as told through the life of one person. Diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Chris Lucash searches for meaning, while the endangered species he dedicated his career to saving potentially faces a second extinction in the wild. ALS takes away the physicality and autonomy that defined Chris. The red wolf population plummets from gunshots and decisions by the federal agency charged with saving the species. Join Chris as he cares for endangered red wolves and searches for answers to the question, “Why me?”. Did living and working in an industrial agriculture-dominated area contribute to Chris’ ALS? Chris learns about research showing correlations between pesticides, fertilizer run-off and neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS. Chris and the red wolves lost control over their own fate, but Chris has control over how he lives his life and how he dies. He fights fear of death, gives us all hope despite our mortality, and inspires all of us to reconnect with nature and live our lives with purpose to make a difference in the world.
