On July 1, journey to the heart of nature in the United States of American with MacGillivray Freeman Film’s America Wild: National Parks Adventure arrived at the Ontario Science Centre narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford. This film follows world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, adventure photographer Max Lowe and artist Rachel Pohl as they hike, climb and explore their way across America’s majestic parks.
Beautifully depicting some of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders and untamed wilderness, this film ventures into the heart of 30 American National Parks soaring over red rock canyons, hurtling down steep mountain peaks and exploring other-worldly realms found within America’s most legendary national parks like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Redwood National Park and the Everglades. Along the way, the film becomes at once an action-packed celebration of the wonders of nature for 100th anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service in 2016.
