Voices of the Land

Our spiritual connection to the land, and how wilderness can heal the soul.

A printer-friendly version of this page 21 minutes
Produced by Christopher McLeod

This moving film is by Christopher McLeod, one of America's foremost environmental filmmakers (DOWNWIND/DOWNSTREAM; THE FOUR CORNERS).

This time he looks at our spiritual connection to the land and to nature. Through interviews with a Southern Ute elder in Colorado, native Hawaiians protesting geothermal energy development in the rainforest home of the goddess Pele, and Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!, the film explores why certain places are held to be sacred and how wilderness can nourish the soul. In particular, Dave Foreman's lucid explanation of how wilderness can reconnect us to our place in the larger scheme of things is a gem.

Each one of us has a special place that holds deep significance for us. This is a film that builds on that experience. It will make you think and feel, and is guaranteed to generate discussion wherever it is shown.
