This film takes a deep, personal dive into the ongoing conflict over the Grand Staircase-Escalante national monument in Southern Utah. Learn how the Monument’s 2017 reduction has affected the lives of three people who live on the monument’s edge: Harlan Featherhat, a Paiute man who helped determine the monument’s original boundaries in 1996; Lonnie Pollock, a Mormon rancher and retired schoolteacher; and Megan Smith, a former backcountry ranger on the monument and advocate for public lands. When landscapes and economies change around us, whose values do we prioritize, and who gets left behind?
There will be a short musical performance after one screening of this film by a young member of the Paiute Nation.
