‘Finding Our Voices’ Producers Support Redford’s Efforts to Save Utah Wilderness

WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Dream Catcher Films, Inc. joins Robert Redford and the NRDC Action Fund in their efforts to put the brakes on a disastrous scheme planned by the lame duck Bush Administration. Left unchecked, the Bush Administration will complete the auction of 160,000 acres of Utah’s Redrock wilderness to oil and gas speculators before Inauguration Day – a schedule which will make land sales difficult to reverse. These lands are among the crown jewels of our natural heritage.

The auction of Redrock country, which is scheduled for Friday, December 19, will include world-renowned vistas near Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, as well as near Dinosaur National Monument. The highest bidders will earn the right to turn vast tracts of pristine wilderness into industrial wastelands.

The stakes are high. With just a few minutes of time on the Internet, Americans who care about the environment, and the legacy that will be left for future generations, can band together and stop this action – but they have to act fast.

Dream Catcher Films, Inc., Robert Redford and the NRDC Action Fund strongly urge Americans to register their protests online today. The process that has been set up on the Internet is fast and easy – one can lodge their protest to Congress rapidly at the following website: http://www.nrdconline.org/campaign/stop_wilderness_giveaway?rk=wdA36U7qNSpmE

Dream Catcher Films, Inc., is the sponsor of the “Lame Duck Watchdog Initiative”, which is derived from Finding Our Voices, an award-winning documentary narrated by Martin Sheen that is about the value of peaceful dissent in our democracy. This film dramatically illustrates one of President-elect Barack Obama’s themes, “Your voice can change the world.” This initiative was inspired by a nightly feature on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. The documentary’s website, which includes a trailer and background information on Iraq war protests by citizens including Congressman Jim Moran, Reverend Graylan Hagler, and two Iraq War veterans, is at: http://www.findingourvoices.com.

Executive Producer Holly Stadtler said, “Finding Our Voices is a moving story about preserving democracy and citizen dissent that is intended to inspire Americans of all ages.”

Stadtler, a former Production Manager for NBC Nightly News and the Today Show, and her talented associates have produced acclaimed videos for National Geographic TV, BBC, PBS, and the Discovery and Learning Channel networks.
