Beautiful and Inspirational
Amy Maniatis | 10/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Moving beyond the political partisanship of today, Monumental is a fascinating documentary chronicling the birth of the modern environmental movement in America using David Brower's own footage. Duane creates a powerful portrait of why stewardship of the environment matters beyond today's soundbites, and chronicles the success of the early leaders at preservng some of the most important monuments in the West, as well as some that were inevitably lost. Anyone who has witnessed the beauty of Point Reyes and vast parts of the Sierra Nevada will recognize in this footage what was saved and what could easly have been lost. Totally inspiring! Great for students!"
