Our next film:
The Arctic Dance: The Mardy Murie Story
Friday Sept 27th
in the Program Center
Dubbed the "Grandmother of the Conservation Movement” by both the Sierra Club and the Wilderness Society, Mardy Murie helped in the passage of the Wilderness Act, and was instrumental in creating the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She was the recipient of the Audubon Medal, the John Muir Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian honor awarded by the United States.
This intimate portrayal draws from hundreds of photographs from Mardy’s years in Alaska, film footage from her years spent lobbying for wilderness conservation, and stories taken from her diaries and journals. The film combines this archival material with more recent footage of Mardy in conversation with her friend, Terry Tempest Williams and Includes appearances by George Schaller, John Denver, Celia Hunter, and many others. Harrison Ford narrates.
