Film Premiere & Discussion with Miriam Horn, author/producer and Greg Dalton, Climate One.

Montana rancher Dusty Crary works to preserve pristine, neighboring wilderness, championing efforts to prevent commercial development. Kansas farmer Justin Knopf defies conventional wisdom and implements controversial new practices to combat soil degradation and erosion. And Louisiana commercial fisherman Wayne Werner partners with fisheries regulators to help ensure a future for the red snapper upon which his business depends.

Based on The New York Times best-selling author Miriam Horn's recent book of the same name, Susan Froemke and John Hoffman's illuminating film spotlights these unlikely conservationists, stewards of the land and sea who don't fit preconceptions of environmentalists. Willing to face hostility from within their own communities by forging unexpected alliances with longtime enemies, these individuals show a commitment to work with—rather than against—nature. Driven by core American values of self-sufficiency, independence, and perseverance, they represent a largely unsung, yet passionate, movement of heartland conservationists committed to preserving the future of their livelihoods. In turn, their vital work safeguards the nation's wealth of natural resources for us all. - Sundance Film Festival
