Science goes IMAX at Science Museum Oklahoma
Trailer for “Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk.”
OKLAHOMA CITY – Visitors will journey across the world’s most beautiful landscapes and back during Science Museum Oklahoma’s annual Film Fest September 11-14 and 18-21. Each with a unique focus, the featured IMAX films reveal the wonders of land and water while addressing environmental issues that influence our everyday lives.
Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk follows world-renowned river advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., celebrated anthropologist Wade Davis and their daughters as they embark on an exhilarating journey down the Colorado River. Filmed during a four-week river-rafting journey, the explorers investigate the relationship of changes in the Grand Canyon’s ecosystem and the increased allocation of river water to agriculture and populations that has left no water at the river’s end-the Colorado Delta.
The second film, Wildfire, showcases the gorgeous wilderness of Idaho, California and Australia as it offers IMAX film audiences an up-close experience of one of the most powerful forces in nature and the efforts put forth by trained and dedicated men and women to contain it. From smokejumpers who parachute into blazes to water-bombing helicopters, visitors discover the reason some fires are deliberately set and controlled by firefighters in order to preserve the earth’s natural resources.
