February 26, 2020 — Brand USA, the destination marketing organization for the United States of America, has once again teamed up with MacGillivray Freeman, the award-winning producers of hit documentaries National Parks Adventure and America’s Musical Journey to produce Into Nature’s Wild. The film will run for the next several months at Science World in Vancouver before making it’s Montreal debut on May 12, 2020.
“Into Nature’s Wild,” is the new 3D documentary for exhibition in IMAX® and giant-screen theatres. It takes viewers on an incredible journey through the nation’s most iconic wilderness areas. Produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in association with Brand USA along with presenting sponsors, Expedia Group and United Airlines, this film showcases the diversity of the United States’ natural and urban wonders.
A celebration of the transformational allure of nature and wild places, “Into Nature’s Wild” is an exhilarating ride via kayak, bike, train, hot air balloon, zipline, kite surfboard, and more, into some of the most beautiful and undiscovered terrain of North America. From the wilds of Alaska and the lush coastline of Oregon, to the ancient canyons of the southwest and the rolling hills of the Appalachian Trail, “Into Nature’s Wild” is wall-to-wall with natural treasures and the joy that comes from spending time in nature.
Guiding this journey are three trailblazers – pioneering Native American astronaut John Herrington, Alaskan pilot and youth advocate Ariel Tweto, and record-breaking long-distance hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis – who share a passion for connecting people to experiences in the wild. As they wind their way through the scenic byways, ancient homelands, secret gems, and hidden trails of America, viewers will discover the special human connection we all share with the natural world.
