Donn Fendler in 1939

Finding Donn Fendler: Lost On A Mountain in Maine 72 Years Later is the true story of 12-year-old Donn Fendler who was lost on Mount Katahdin for nine days in 1939, and how two filmmakers try to turn his adventure into a feature film.

Donn Fendler's story of survival inspired the nation and continues to inspire through his book Lost on a Mountain in Maine. The documentary Finding Donn Fendler follows Donn’s story through the lens of filmmakers Derek Desmond and Ryan Cook as they try to turn Donn’s adventure into a narrative feature film. Through interviews and footage of Donn today, we discover what an amazing man Donn is and what his story has meant to the people of Maine.
