A Letter to Congress

This film is a homage to Wallace Stegner and the enduring words he wrote in his famous ‘Wilderness Letter’ to Congress in 1960. His poetic appeal for robust and comprehensive conservation efforts of America’s wild lands. The message of this short film is:  We must preserve wilderness as a “means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.”
