Review of Saving The Sierra

"Saving The Sierra" is impeccably rich in soundscapes, diverse voices and thoughtful contemplation. As development continues to encroach on shrinking farmlands, this timely documentary asks pertinent questions and offers differing routes to solutions. Producers Catherine Stifter and Jesika Maria Ross not only knows their subject matter but have a personal connection to the material as residents of the Sierra. This beautiful meditation on the challenges facing their homeland mirrors the dilemma so many of us face in our own states. I convinced my local station to air "Saving The Sierra" on Earth Day, and I urge other stations to give a listen and schedule this fine documentary on April 22nd or beyond.
