Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the documentary Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Black Hills this Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3, at 12 noon.

Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Black Hills explores the Old West heritage of South Dakota and the breathtaking beauty of the Black Hills. Viewers will be treated to footage of the Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorials as well as the rugged peaks and majestic forests of South Dakota's Black Hills.

The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival. The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne.

Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Black Hills is 85 minutes long and intended for a general audience. All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at 12 noon on Fridays and Saturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing.

All park programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please call (315) 568-0024.
