Traverse Image proudly presents On Strange Soil— a feature-length documentary film about the past, present and future state of America’s 640 million acres of public land. The filmmakers will introduce a Seed & Spark campaign beginning Tuesday, October 22 with the goal of raising $15,000 to support completion of this documentary film.
With an unprecedented attack on Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument., the Antiquities Act is currently being challenged resulting in rural locals banding together to make sure this precedent doesn’t stand. The completed feature film will serve as a platform to bring diverse, important, and powerful voices to the table to ensure that the rescinding a national monument can not stand.
“The introduction of a new administration and new policies governing the country in 2017 created a turbulent year for public lands,” explains director and Traverse Image founder, Thomas Kolicko. “Conflict and threats against protected land emerged and were immediately followed by a passionate outcry from the people that cherish the land most,” said Kolicko.
On Strange Soil features the untold story behind the motivations leading up to the actions that have started a recent battle over our public lands. It gives a voice to passionate public landowners while educating the public on the need to preserve and protect these lands.
