Visit From Home: Zion Shares National Park Film for Free

Although National Park Week was last week, Zion’s new park film will stay online — for free.

Zion’s new film, “We the Keepers,” premiered last week in honor of the park’s centennial anniversary and National Park Week. Now, because national parks across the U.S. are still closed due to the pandemic, Zion is leaving the film online.

The film captures the essence of Zion: through its unique sounds, animals, landscapes, and people.

“These lands are now called Zion. And Zion belongs to everyone,” narrates Angelita Bulletts, a Paiute tribal member. “It’s important that people take the time to connect to this land.”

That’s fairly hard to do right now because we can’t visit. But if you’ve ever been to Zion, or longed to visit the quintessential canyons and cliffs, you know it’s possible to be there in spirit.

So join us in living vicariously through this film, with stories from native tribe members, park rangers, climbers, and more. And look for the feature-length version of the film this fall.

This film would not be possible without help from Local Studio Production Company, Mystery Ranch Backpacks, Greater Zion, and the Utah Film Commission.
