Common Ground – The Fight for Wilderness

This short film introduces the story of the proposed Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act, a “made-in-Montana,” policy compromise to define the future of the wilderness in Montana, especially that of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. Designated as protected wilderness in 1964 by the U.S. Congress, it contains over one million acres. However the Rocky Mountain Front, 400,000 unprotected acres that border “the Bob,” is currently unprotected from future development.  Produced by RED REEL, it examines both the uniting and conflicting effect that wilderness protection can have on a community with heavily steeped tradition, heritage, and a way of life that depends on the land itself.   Check out the website for the film at .
