So many opinions. So many voices. So many designations. One land. And one crew out to feel the landscape and listen for complexity and understanding. Why?
Initial Thoughts from the Crew:
Eva: To learn about the natural resource issue in Utah. Leroy: To see some new things and have some new experiences. It’s just so different from what I’m used to and it not at all like Vermont. Aron: To see natural beauty, to work with and teach media skills. Mason: To join a group of independent film students looking to learn about the land and issues surrounding it in Utah and also explore filmmaking. Mary: To feel this surreal landscape and learn from the people in Utah how they understand the uses and worth of public land. Michelle: To explore the wild west and listen with open ears and heart to all of the different voices out here and really understand what’s going on. Alahni: I’d never explored filmmaking before and I wanted to leave Vermont. Aylie: Wilderness is a complicated issue – who distinguishes it, who gets to enjoy it, and who lives in it. Who came first? Where does wilderness begin? and how do we cross the line?
