The 2004 documentary “American Values, American Wilderness” will be screened Friday at the Sunflower Theatre. Following the film, writer and director Christopher Barns will hold a Q&A.

KSJD’s Tom Yoder sat down with Barns ahead of the screening. Barns spoke to the film's variety of perspectives on the Wilderness Act, how actor Christopher Reeve was involved in the film, and why the film is important 15 years after it was released.

See “American Values, American Wilderness” at the Sunflower Theatre in downtown Cortez at 7 p.m. Friday, July 12. Visit for tickets and more information.

Tom worked as an archaeologist in the Four Corners area for many years before his passion for radio and storytelling brought him to KSJD. He volunteered as a DJ at station and served on the Community Radio Project's board of directors before joining the staff as the Programming & Media Director in 2010.
