“PLANETARY” 85 min Not Rated

PLANETARY is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call – a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. It is a poetic and humbling reminder that now is the time to shift our perspective.

“Gathering Voices” 5 min Not Rated

Directed and written by Becky McMillen, Featuring still photography by Billy Estes

Gathering Voices is a Nebraska experience. Each year as the vernal equinox draws near, the Platte River welcomes thousands upon thousands of Sandhill Cranes during their annual pilgrimage to northern breeding grounds. The cry of the Sandhill Crane has echoed across Nebraska prairie land for millennia. This ancient ritual, this Gathering of Voices along the Platte is an awakening of spirit.

“Nebraska Land & Sky” 60 min Not Rated

From high above the land and down on-the-ground, the documentary traces Nebraska’s history and legacy. Featured stops include Willa Cather’s childhood home in Red Cloud, Nebraska’s majestic and rugged landscapes around Wildcat Hills in the Panhandle and the vibrant cityscapes of eastern Nebraska. Homage is given to Nebraska’s ranchers and farmers, the state’s culture, recreation and exciting moments in Nebraska sports history.
