SeaToShiningSea_STL.jpgFilmmaker Evan Mather takes viewers on a cross-country journey in the world premiere of From Sea to Shining Sea, a contemporary portrait of the American landscape chronicled via coast-to-coast time-lapse video and audio collage. The film traverses eleven states from the Chesapeake Bay to San Francisco through cities and towns, and over a variety of geographical features to create a sense of the vastness and diversity within the United States. Viewers will leave with a greater appreciation of the country’s diverse physical and cultural landscape. Phillip Stamper-Halpin, Public Relations and Communications Coordinator at the American Society of Landscape Architects, provides opening remarks . Mather provides comments and answers questions after the film. From Sea to Shining Sea is being shown in association with National Landscape Architecture Month.
