Threats to the Boundary Waters have taken many forms over time, but dedication to keeping this area safe has endured. This film's focus is on the people who help spread appreciation for the land and carry on, in their own individual ways, the legacy of Sigurd Olson, a writer and conservationist who was responsible for the area's National Forest designation in 1978. Today, more than ever, we must realize what is at stake if we fail to protect these wild lands. With understanding and enthusiasm, future generations will not hesitate to pick up right where Sig left off.

Run time: 13 min
A feature-length documentary about America’s system of public lands and the fight to protect them. Despite support from voters across the political spectrum, our public lands face unprecedented threats from extractive industries and the politicians in their pockets. Part love letter, part political exposé, Public Trust investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through three heated conflicts—a national monument in the Utah desert, a mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—and makes a case for their continued protection.
Run time: 90 min
