Film Screening: Wild Resurrection
Free screening of the documentary Wild Resurrection: The Untold Story of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness. The screening is co-sponsored by our McCracken Research Library and Draper Natural History Museum.
In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed an act to designate the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. Today, the protected status of this place is vital to our regional identity, our economy, and to the plentiful wildlife, intact ecosystems, clean water, and clean air we all cherish. But it almost didn’t happen. This 30-minute documentary tells the story of that near miss, and explores the meaning of this place—and of Wilderness itself—to our human psyche.
Wild Resurrection was written, produced, and directed by Kris Prinzing, the Executive Director of MusEco Media and Education Project.
