Director Doug Hawes-Davis of High Plains Films recently uploaded a new documentary about the historic transfer of wild, genetically pure bison from Yellowstone National Park to the Fort Peck tribes of northeastern Montana. You may have heard about this big move on the evening news, or read about it in the Indy, and this short film adds a little more to the story with its extended footage, interviews and perspective.
This is a follow-up to Facing the Storm: Story of the American Bison, which Hawes-Davis also directed. That feature-length doc made its national broadcast premiere last week on Independent Lens by PBS.
