Trailer: Land of No Use

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 11.34.09 AM

Land of No Use seeks to examine the value of Montana’s public lands.  The trailer features some awesome skiing, riding, and snowmobiling from our friends up north.  It seems to be an interesting project.  

“Land of No Use” is a two year documentary project using winter recreation to explore the value of Montana’s public lands. The title comes from an old bumper sticker and slogan for opponents of wilderness designations (i.e. motorized recreation enthusiasts and timber corporations) that reads, “Wilderness = Land of No Use.” The narrative of the land management debate will shadow that of a group of young athletes exploring terrain where humans are mere visitors, in a state named for its mountains.
