Grizzly Creek film, 2019
Abstract: It's a place where snow meets fiery underground forces, where waters travel from Rocky Mountain peaks to the Great Plains, and where age-old battles between predator and prey take place. This is Yellowstone, home to some of the most spectacular landscapes and wildlife in America. Join host Bill Pullman on an exploration of its colorful springs and raging waters, its glittering winters and lush summers, and its returning packs of predators and vast array of winged creatures. It’s a bird’s eye view of an iconic place, Yellowstone. Soaring above Old Faithful and the Lower Falls, winged creatures survey an extraordinary landscape. But a bird’s life in the extremes of the world’s first national park isn’t an easy glide.

Abstract: The illicit ivory trade is taking a toll far beyond the reaches of our imagination. When adult elephants are slaughtered by poachers for their tusks, young calves are by their side and witness the traumatizing events. Unable to survive without the care of a mother or herd, they are left to die in the wild. Their survival is dependent on the extraordinary people who dedicate their lives to protecting and raising them at an elephant orphanage tucked deep within Kafue National Park in the heart of Zambia. This film is an inside look into their lives and the struggles they face as they grow up as A HERD OF ORPHANS. Filmmaker Kelly Bakos captures the heartwarming, humorous and cheeky personalities of these orphans while interweaving stories about daily survival and coming of age within an unnatural setting—while threats still abound.

Abstract: Edward Loure is a Maasai tribesman and herder. Like his ancient ancestors he is a pastoralist. He raises goats and cows and the tribe has thrived for centuries living on the sustenance from their animals. They are nomadic and have been stewards of hundreds of miles of grazing lands throughout Kenya and Tanzania. In recent years due to corporate farming, development and tourism, the Maasai traditional grazing lands have been slowly diminishing. That is, until Edward decided to do something about it. He organized the communities and drew up a petition to the government to claim parcels of their ancestral lands. After many years of effort, Edward and the Maasai and the Neighboring Hadza tribe were rewarded for their efforts. They now can roam freely on hundreds of thousands of acres of their own deeded land.

Abstract: Joe Buck, un giovane texano, giunge a New York ingenuamente convinto di fare fortuna con le danarose signore di Park Avenue, grazie alle proprie doti fisiche. Dopo alcuni squallidi incontri sentimentali, il giovane si imbatte in Rizzo, un povero storpio ridotto a vivere di espedienti. Sentendo Joe vantarsi spavaldamente della propria virilità, Rizzo coglie l'occasione per truffarlo, chiedendogli venti dollari per fargli da "manager". Ridotto senza soldi Joe vaga per la città, assoggettandosi per pochi dollari a umilianti esperienze, finché per caso non ritrova Rizzo. La tentazione di picchiare l'imbroglione è forte, ma maggiore è la necessità di trovare un tetto e qualcosa da mangiare. Joe finisce così con l'accettare l'ospitalità che Rizzo gli offre e va a vivere con lui. Sempre con l'idea di poter riprendere proficuamente il "mestiere" che lo aveva indotto a partire, il giovane texano si adatta a poco a poco alle regole per sopravvivere che l'infermità e la sfortuna hanno insegnato a Rizzo. Col passare del tempo tra i due nasce una sincera amicizia. Quando le condizioni di salute di Rizzo si aggravano, Joe riesce a racimolare con la violenza un poco di danaro sufficiente a condurre l'amico nel più salubre clima della Florida. Durante il viaggio in pullman Joe confida all'amico l'intenzione di cambiare vita.

Abstract: Howard Wood was an amateur diver for his entire adult life. Over the decades, Howard saw that marine life in Lamlash Bay had diminished drastically due to the excessive use of dredging techniques for scallops. The entire ocean bottom had been scraped clean. What used to be a sport fisherman's paradise was now completely barren. The local angling competition had long since been forsaken. Howard set out to organize the community and to petition the Parliament to create a protected are or not take zone. After many years of research, compiling data, community organizing and lobbying the government, The Lamlash Bay No Take Zone was established.

Abstract: The greatest untold story of American counterculture is that of theYosemite Valley rock climbers. For 50 years, Yosemite’s cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite. The characters of Yosemite carved out an “extreme bohemian” lifestyle, living as beatnik vagabonds, clashing with National Park authorities and pioneering the boldest climbs on Earth. The torch has been passed across generations of climbers; through rivalries, tragedies and triumphs, the art of climbing has exceeded imagination. This is the riveting tale of this bold tradition: half a century’s struggle against the laws of gravity -and the laws of the land.

Abstract: The Obed: Find Yourself Here captures the very heart of the Obed Wild and Scenic River. Located on the Cumberland Plateau in Eastern Tennessee, the Obed River Gorge is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, including many listed as rare, threatened, or endangered. The film offers an intimate look at the park through the eyes of the hikers, paddlers, fishermen, scientists, climbers, and admirers who seek out experiences only found in nature. While daring footage of Class IV rapids, steeply overhanging cliffs, and ice storms give a viewer a taste of the many adventures available in the park. The Obed: Find Yourself Here is an unconventional and artistic look at a park whose beauty is inseparably linked to its remoteness and inaccessibility.
