National broadcasts of FACING THE STORM: STORY OF THE AMERICAN BISON will begin this Thursday, April 26, 2012 on the acclaimed PBS series, Independent Lens. Nearly 1600 broadcast dates have been confirmed by PBS stations nation-wide with all major markets carrying the program. Check local listings for broadcast times and dates. This latest work by filmmaker, Doug Hawes-Davis, is an unflinching examination of the complex, centuries-long relationship between humans and bison in North America. The Kansas City Star calls the film, “An incisive history of the animal’s relationship to man and efforts to restore bison herds to the Great Plains.” The Missoulian adds that the film “paints a portrait that’s as broad and subtly shaded as the Great Plains themselves.”
The feature version of the film, which was broadcast exclusively on MontanaPBS has been nominated for a NW Regional Emmy Award in the Documentary category. Amazon and the iTunes store are now accepting pre-orders for DVD and video downloads of the documentary feature.
