    It’s been called The Big Empty – an immense sea of sagebrush that once stretched 500,000 square miles across North America, exasperating thousands of westward-bound travelers as an endless place through which they had to pass to reach their destinations. Yet it’s far from empty, as those who look closely will discover. In this ecosystem anchored by the sage, eagles and antelope, badgers and lizards, rabbits, wrens, owls, prairie dogs, songbirds, hawks and migrating birds of all description make their homes.

  • Albert Maysles: Conjurer of Real Life

    26 May 2015 | 9:04 am
    Albert Maysles, with Little Edie, in 2012. Albert Maysles, along with his brother David, changed the art and aspirations of generations of filmmakers. But they did much more than that.

There were few documentaries being shown in theaters in those days, and those that were came out of an earlier tradition…
