Interview by Paul Salfen
Deep in the Heart is a visually stunning celebration of what makes Texas unique — its diverse
landscapes and remarkable wildlife behavior that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Told
through the eyes of wildlife species ranging from the mysterious blind catfish to the elusive mountain
lion, the story follows our ever-changing relationship with the natural world and showcases our ability to
destroy, conserve, and recover wildlife and the habitat we mutually depend on. Narrated by Matthew
McConaughey and featuring state-of-the-art cinematography, this family-friendly film journeys from the
highest peaks in West Texas, through our aquifers, rivers, and bays, and deep into the Gulf of Mexico.
Deep in the Heart aims to conserve our remaining wild places, to show the connectivity of water and
wildlife, and to recognize Texas’ conservation importance on a continental scale.
