"Out There: A National Parks Story" Exclusive Film Screening with director Brendan Hall

Tuesday, March 5th, 7:30 - 9:00 pm

Join filmmaker Brendan Hall for an exclusive screening of his award winning feature length documentary, Out There: A National Parks Story. The film has screened at festivals across the country to sold out audiences of all ages. Hall is excited to bring this event to PLA and share insights into the making of the film in a post-film discussion, and share opportunities for impact partnerships in distribution.

In the documentary, a young filmmaker sets out on a 10,000-mile exploration of the national parks with his childhood friend during the centennial year of the formation of the National Park Service. Along the way, they share experiences of the people that work in the parks and those that come to enjoy them, as part of the rich tapestry of the history of the park system emerges. They hear profound stories from people of all ages and walks of life who have come to the parks seeking tranquility, healing, motivation, and connection to the natural world.

This stunning road trip film is a tribute to the national parks and their history, and is also a recognition of the people that appreciate them and work to preserve their beauty.
