On this, the 100 year anniversary of the Grand Canyon National Park, comes a program designed to show off the Canyon in all its splendor.

Wings Over Grand Canyon presents a revealing look at something we all thought we knew well. The film expands a viewers’ vision of what we think of as the Grand Canyon. Following the Colorado River from Castle Valley in Utah to the Grand Canyon in Arizona and Lake Mead in Nevada, the journey covers over a thousand air miles to capture an endless variety of stunning imagery.

The viewer sees high alpine forests, spectacular lakes and secret canyons. They will experience Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Lake Powell, the Little Colorado River Gorge and the ultimate, the Grand Canyon National Park itself.

The film transports the viewer into landscapes of magic and mystery, many seen this way for the first time. Winging over regions where few are allowed to fly, the aerial team reveals amazing Lake Powell, known as the world’s most beautiful lake, with its 2000 miles of breathtaking shoreline, islands & channels.

We then soar above the stunning Marble Canyon, a giant crack in the Earth, where it then enters the South Rim region, the grandest and most well-known part of the Grand Canyon, for an unprecedented look at this most-famous national treasure. The film takes us 5000 feet deep into the Little Colorado River George. Revealing a secret river of magical beauty for a remarkable, uninterrupted flight sequence, through one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Climbing high to get above the North Rim, Wings Over Grand Canyon reveals astonishingly different landscapes of green forests and lush valleys.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
