Luna wants to stress you’re going to dig the upcoming events from Backcountry Pictures.

In March, the Environmental Film Festival and the Smithsonian Institution presented ‘A Walk in the Park With David Vassar’ at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. The program included clips from David’s environmental films produced between 1970 and 2016. In order to create ‘pristine’ digital files for HD projection, David went back to the original film and video masters.

Included was his 1979 Academy Award nominated documentary, ‘Generation on the Wind.’ This year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences painstakingly restored the film and created a new HD master.  Now, for the first time in over 30 years, the entire film will screen on November 11 at the ITSA film Festival in Sonora and at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco as part of the San Francisco Green Film Festival in April, 2017.

Generation on the Wind is a character study that focuses on a group of young artists, mechanics and environmental activists who successfully built the largest electrical generating windmill in the world.

Following the success of A WALK IN THE PARK in DC, the live presentation has taken on a life of its own and was recently presented to enthusiastic audiences at the Bret Harte Theater, David Brower Center, and the Wine Country Film Festival.

Here are some important new events to mark on your calendar:
