Film festival highlights adventure, activism

special to the daily

What would it take to imagine a new kind of road – a road that takes into account the travels of those with four legs, not just four wheels?

As roads continue to fragment our landscape, how do we strike a balance between wildlife and growth? These questions are at the center of “Division Street,” a film that drives viewers cross-country from Miami to Yellowstone in search of the answer. With stunning cinematography, “Division Street” takes a hard look at America’s concrete jungles, pristine roadless areas and everywhere in between.

Across the globe, tribes in New Britain, Papua New Guinea face their own battles with growth. Logging companies have brought change – both good and bad – to the land that has sustained the people generation after generation. In “The Last Frontier,” a team of kayakers explores the Pandi River of Papua New Guinea to document the region’s rich biodiversity and raise awareness about the threats of unchecked logging. Before the team can begin their expedition, however, they have to uncover the source of the river.

Saturday night, “Division Street,” “The Last Frontier” and other exciting selections from the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival will be showing at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. The Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival is a national production, designed to inspire action and discussion in communities through film. This event supports the Blue River Watershed Group, a local non-profit that works to protect, restore and promote a healthy Blue River in Summit County. All proceeds benefit the work of the Blue River Watershed Group.
