Tuesday, February 28
6pm – 7:30pm
Director David Butterfield will share clips from the documentary and talk about inside information about Sun Valley history and on the making of the film.
About the film:
In the work of Averell Harriman, Bill Janss, and Earl Holding, we find uncommon vision, creative passion, and an enduring commitment to Sun Valley resort. It’s a classic American success story about creating a special place that had a great impact on the winter sports and travel industries, helped our local communities evolve, and promises a bright future. The production team and many contributors are long time locals with an abiding appreciation for our community and lifestyle. As much as The Sun Valley Story is an historical portrait, it is also a celebration of our values, shared experience, and aspirations.
