“Through the Great Southwest” is a documentary film about the Arizona Trail, an 800-mile path that spans across the state from Mexico to Utah. The trail, which showcases amazingly beautiful and diverse terrain, has an equally significant impact on the lives of many of the people who hike, ride, run, and support it across the state of Arizona.
Outdoor Evolution Founder Darwin Rakestraw makes his directorial debut with this Film Project inspired by the History, Geography, Community, Association, and Users of the 800 mile National Scenic Trail.
In addition to a showing of the film, the premiere will include a Q&A session with Darwin and ATA President Matt Nelson, Meet & Greet, and an exclusive Outdoor Evolution beer, brewed in collaboration with Arizona Wilderness Brewery! Proceeds from the event will benefit the Arizona Trail Association and their continued efforts to maintain the trail.
