“The Last Prairie” Sandhills documentary film
April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT$15
If a prairie could speak, what would it say? The Last Prairie is a documentary film by John O’Keefe, a theologian and documentary filmmaker at Creighton University, that profiles the Sandhills of Nebraska, one of the last remaining intact temperate grasslands in the world. Presented through voices from three different communities, the film listens to ecologists who love and study the region’s biodiversity, ranchers who live and work on its vast expanse, and Native Lakota people whose ancestors were killed to make way for American westward expansion.
The film is screening as part of a “Celebrate Prairie Spring!” event at the National Willa Cather Center beginning at 1:30 p.m., with the film screening at 7 p.m. in the Opera House auditorium. $15 tickets are required.
