About the film:

A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivray’s most visually ambitious giant-screen film to date—a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks’ history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all. National Parks Adventure captures the stunning beauty of our wild places and reminds us these landscapes are an essential part of the human spirit.
