Heart Land takes viewers on a raging white-water kayaking ride, into the thundering heat of a chuck wagon race, and swooping over a field of magnificent sunflowers. Scenes include Evelyn Hart and Andre Lewis dancing Norbet Vesak’s award-winning pas de deux; Belong, an animated sequence by Richard Condie; and images, past and present, of the people who have carved out a new life against a vast and sometimes unforgiving landscape.

Length: 37:00
