Short documentaries about two U.S. National Parks — Yosemite and Grand Canyon.

When Theodore Roosevelt created the National Conservation Commission in 1908, it was more from the prodding of John Muir, the greatest admirer of Yosemite and founder of the Sierra Club, than from any other National Park or group. The scenic wonders of its glacially-carved Valley made it an early favorite of artists and photographers.

Most visitors find their first view as they walk to the edge of the Grand Canyon one of the most overpowering and memorable experience of their lives. The impact and vast space of its one mile deep, eighteen mile wide, multi-hued chasm is simply impressive.

The movie screening will be in English.
