The Ground Between Us

Director: Galen Knowles, Zeppelin Zeerip Run Time: 59 min. Release Year: 2020

About the film:

In 2017, battle lines were drawn on America’s public lands as national monuments were shrunk, environmental protections were stripped, and millions of acres of land were opened to oil and gas development.

Americans from both sides of the political spectrum have voiced their support in protecting these areas. This new documentary follows three families who hold vastly different connections and perspectives on public lands as they fight for their futures.

About the filmmakers:

Helmed by Zeppelin Zeerip, Galen Knowles and Phil Hassler, with their combined passion for conservation and exploring stories that challenge preconceived understandings of the human experience. Their previous collaboration, Far From Home: Uganda to the Tetons, featuring Africa’s first Olympic snowboarder, was nominated for the Greg Gund Memorial Standing Up Award at the Cleveland International Film Festival in 2015.

The Ground Between Us is also produced by Brian Newman, former CEO of Tribeca Film Institute.
