On Friday, Nov. 25, immerse yourself in barrier-breaking films about people and nature that show how important our connection to the living world is.

Enjoy three films that explore a different part of the Yellowstone to Yukon region and tell a unique story of perseverance and hope.
Tickets are free. Join us for all three films, or just the ones that interest you. Replays available until Monday, Nov. 28.
Each film will be presented live, and followed by an engaging panel discussion featuring the filmmaker.
For the Next Generation (11 a.m. MT)
With filmmaker Julie Cajune and wildlife biologist Whisper Camel-Means
In Montana, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Nation have been working for generations to preserve the biodiversity of the Mission Mountain Range. Comprising less than 5 percent of the population, Indigenous people care for 80 percent of global biodiversity. Yet everywhere their way of life is under threat, as is highlighted in this film by Salish member Julie Cajune.
