American Values: American Wilderness, Narrated by Christopher Reeve
57 minutes, color, 2005, DVD
AMERICAN VALUES: AMERICAN WILDERNESS weaves together the stories of Americans' passionate love of wild places through the narration of the late Christopher Reeve.
This 57-minute film introduces viewers to a wide range of people from Florida to Alaska, including among others: a teen-age daughter of Cambodian refugees. a children's book author, a cancer survivor, a Native American tribal chairman, a man increasingly disabled by polio, and inner city kids visiting wilderness for the first time.
These people share their values for wilderness as a place of sanctuary for animals and plants, the source of clean air and water, a place for challenge and spiritual renewal, and as a legacy for future generations. Their experiences and hopes are interspersed with photography of some of the beautiful wild lands that have captured their hearts.
A labor of love for Reeve, the late actor donated his time and energy to this film - one of his last on-screen appearances before his death in October 2004. As he concludes, "It's been a while since I was in a wilderness. It might take a bit longer before I do get to go back to one. But even if that never happens, I will always value wilderness."
AMERICAN VALUES: AMERICAN WILDERNESS is directed and produced by Christopher Barns, Doug Hawes-Davis and Drury Gunn Carr. It is Barn's directorial debut.
