REMEMBERED EARTH is a captivating journey through a storied landscape of the American West, featuring spectacular landscape photography and a thoughtful interpretation of land ethics by Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday. Noted Indian actor Irene Bedard (Smoke Signals, Pocahontas) narrates the film. The haunting original orchestral score was written by Academy Award-winner Todd Boekelheide.

REMEMBERED EARTH explores the relationships between people and the land, "exemplified by the ingenious use of clips of Hollywood Westerns that helped mythologize not just the Southwest but America itself." (Washington Post)

The stark landscape of the desert southwest, at once beckoning and alienating, has left many of us at a loss for words. REMEMBERED EARTH provides an impression of this gorgeous corner of Northwestern New Mexico through stunning imagery and poetic descriptions.
