A Noble Pursuit
This 48 minute documentary is the story of a Wyoming community coming together to achieve one of the most significant oil and gas lease buyouts in American history.
This film is about the importance of every person's voice when it comes to deciding what happens to our public lands.
I have lived in Wyoming for over 20 years and when 1000's of acres in the Wyoming Range was planned for energy development, I decided to make the commitment to document the story of citizens mobilizing in an effort to preserve their land. This film is a celebration of my community and all the interesting, diverse, and passionate residents of Sublette County, Wyoming. Ranchers, cowboys, cowgirls, hunters, energy industry professionals, wildlife experts, and local residents all came together, across political divides, in unprecedented support of one another in their fight to save a cherished mountain wilderness.
