The film “Mysteries of the Driftless” to be shown in Harmony


Mon, Sep 28th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Features

The Harmony Arts Board and Niagara Cave are hosting a free movie screening of the popular short film “Mysteries of the Driftless” on Sunday, October 11, at 4:30 p.m. in the Jem Theatre, Harmony, Minn.

This film explores the many unique resources of the Driftless Area in which we live. The Driftless Area encompasses the corners of southeastern Minn., southwestern Wis., northeastern Iowa, and northwestern Ill. This equates to an area the size of 24,000 square miles. The area was untouched by the last glaciers, called the Wisconsinan glaciation, some 10,000 – 12,000 years ago. Glaciers leave behind deposits such as silt, clay, sand, gravel, and boulders which are called drift--hence the name, Driftless Area; no glaciers = no drift = Driftless.

This 2013 documentary won a Regional Emmy award for its excellence. Harmony’s own Niagara Cave is featured in the film. The Bishops will share their experiences following the showing.

“Mysteries of the Driftless” is about a team of science filmmakers, led by Rob Nelson and Dan Bertalan, exploring a number of mysteries of the Driftless landscape while kayaking the rivers, flying in a small plane, touring caves, and hiking the bluffs of the Upper Midwest. What strange forces spared one isolated region along the Upper Mississippi River from the repeated crushing and scouring effects of massive continental glaciers during the last million-plus years? What pre-Ice Age throwbacks survived here in this unique refuge that holds more Native American effigy mounds, petroglyph caves, strange geological features, and rare species than anywhere in the Midwest? The team explores these questions and more in this captivating adventure documentary. The film is a production of Untamed Science and Mississippi Valley Conservancy.

Filmmaker Dan Bertalan said, “If there’s one thing that impacted me the most in making this film, it is the sheer amount of natural wonders the Driftless has to discover that lie hidden within the region. It’s just a matter of knowing where to look and what to look for. This film will definitely open people’s eyes with some startling revelations.”

The film has a running time of 27 minutes. With time added for an introduction and for a Q+A discussion afterwards, attendees should plan on one hour.
