A Cascade River Ethic
In Memory of Robert (Bob) H. Keller Jr.
The first part of the title is “A Cascade River Ethic,” in part acknowledging Bob’s interpretation of Leopold’s ideas. The film runs about 1hr 5min. For now it is one long piece, with an intro of about 5 minutes; Bob talking at different locations and other visual materials about the land until about 42 minutes in; then two short readings from his essay about the land; and finally about 17 minutes of images of people, river, land, animals and plants there; and credits. To be honest, at times it takes a pace like that advocated by Thoreau, and features trail-cam technology nearly as vintage! At many points, and especially those last 17 minutes, it is carried along by the fabulous hammered dulcimer music generously provided by Jerry Read Smith and friends, as listed in the credits.
