Spirit Lands: An American Desert Odyssey is a visual and musical journey to some of the most spectacular, beautiful and awe-inspiring natural wonders of the American desert. Emmy Award winning cinematographer David Fortney spent four years collecting imagery for this project, traveling to every desert location in America, including seven National Parks. A variety of innovative filming techniques were used in the production of this non-narrated, visual masterpiece, including motion control, time lapse and low level aerial cinematography. The film is accompanied by a music score featuring evocative Native American music by John Huling and R. Carlos Nakai. Also included are beautiful and inspiring texts by Native American Wisdom Keepers, with quotations and prayers celebrating our connection with the earth and the need to respect and honor her. On this magical journey, you'll visit the surreal and beautiful Mono Lake in California, and these national parks: &#x25BA%x; Arches National Park &#x25BA%x; Grand Canyon National Park &#x25BA%x; Death Valley National Park &#x25BA%x; Zion National Park &#x25BA%x; Canyonlands National Park &#x25BA%x; Bryce Canyon National Park &#x25BA%x; Joshua Tree National Park.
