Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area announces the Kentucky premiere of its new park movie, Generations, on Saturday, September 10, at 4:30 p.m. (ET) at McCreary Central High School. This new park movie was more than a year in the making, with footage shot across all four seasons and featuring many of the park’s most prominent outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, hunting, horseback riding, whitewater paddling, camping, fishing and rock climbing.
The movie was filmed by Silver Fir Media, who won first place for a media award in 2014 from the National Association of Interpretation in the short video category for their film, The Obed: Find Yourself Here. To capture the heart of the Big South Fork and its spectacular scenery, film crews braved snow storms, Class IV rapids, remote deeply wooded areas and steep cliffs.
“This film will give visitors a glimpse of the park like it’s never been seen before,” said Superintendent Niki Nicholas. “The result is an unconventional, artistic, and breathtakingly intimate look into the heart of a park whose beauty is inseparably linked to its remoteness and cultural history.”
Visitors are encouraged to join park staff as they roll out the red carpet for the unveiling of a truly unique short film. This is a free event and reservations are not required.
McCreary Central High School is located at:
400 Raider Way
