BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - A program examining the remaining wildness of the Great Plains will be shown this weekend as part of the Homestead Film Festival at the Homestead National Monument of America.

“Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild” will be shown at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. It is based on Nebraskan nature photographer Michael Forsberg’s book of the same name.

Monument Superintendent Mark Engler says the documentary “tells the powerful story of transformation from nature’s perspective - specifically the perspective of the Great Plains.”

On the remaining 2014 film festival schedule are the “Road to Valhalla” on Feb. 15 and Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” on Feb. 22 and Feb. 23.

Homestead National Monument of America sits four miles west of Beatrice off Nebraska Highway 4.
