The Lewis and Clark story is one of America’s great adventures. What better way to celebrate their story than to retrace the most difficult part of their journey? Smithsonian Curator Emeritus Dr. Herman J. Viola and documentary filmmaker Bob Weis did just that–leading twenty modern Americans on a grueling and spectacular 10-day horseback trek over the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho. The result is a stunning experience back into the American Landscape as the Corps of Discovery first saw it.

For history buffs, this is an exciting retelling of an American adventure. For adventure travelers, it is an exciting journey into some of the country’s most fragile and beautiful sites.

Filmed in remote areas only reachable by horseback, and in exclusive locations including inside Monticello, the Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian.

This Week’s Snag Film: Rising From Ruins

Meyers Auto Parts, in its post-Katrina state. This is the story of the frustrating, spirited battle of a people dedicated to bringing their communities back to life.

Rising from Ruins is set in the spring of 2008, three years after Katrina, finds many communities still lack basic local services such as grocery stores, gas stations and banks. Yet, government support and financial breaks for large chain stores – including tax-free land and buildings – have resulted in small, local businesses being forced to subsidize their competition through the assessment of higher property taxes.

Compounding the struggle for the small outfits is decreased sales due to competition and an inability to compete with lower prices offered by the larger stores. This is the story of the frustrating, spirited battle of a people passionately dedicated to bringing their communities back to life in an enduring, sustainable way.

Director Hanson Hosein served as an NBC correspondent and solo journalist during the war in Iraq and coordinated NBC Nightly News’ coverage of the U.S. handover of power to the new Iraqi government and was embedded with the First Cavalry Division.  Remember: you can create FREE custom movie theater widget from Snag Films whenever you like…
