Yellowstone National Park has been a popular tourist destination since Teddy Roosevelt declared the land a nature preserve. With the amazing geysers, hot springs, picturesque mountains, and towering old growth forests, this park has everything any nature buff could want. Yellowstone is a virtual tour of this nature showcase that far exceeds any other film that has attempted to capture the splendor of this patch of heaven. Originally filmed in the IMAX format, Yellowstone (a Slingshot Entertainment release) was intended to make the viewer feel as if they were soaring up sheer cliffs and circles snow peaked mountains. With 32 minutes of visual enlightenment to behold, this film may be even better than actually standing in Yellowstone. Would you be able to climb into a geyser and see it from the inside? Would you want to actually be standing in the path of a two-ton grizzly? More than likely, no, and that is why director Kieth Merril placed the camera in these unique situations. This film is meant to thrill and educate, and to give unique perspectives that are nearly impossible for humans to achieve.
