"The Appalachian Trail: An American Legacy" Officially Released


Johnson City, TN, December 01, 2014 --(PR.com)-- After 5 years of development, filmmaker Sam Henegar has released his full length documentary film, "The Appalachian Trail: An American Legacy" produced by Still Waters Imagery & Media. The film features footage captured in all 4 seasons from the Appalachians as well as a multitude of archival photos and films from various collections to portray the beauty of the Appalachian Trail's hiking experience as well as it's unique history.

The film was selected for use in this year's Appalachian Trail Conservancy Membership Drive, which featured 5 events through the month of October and raised over $60,000 for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. The premiere of the film was held at the Avalon Theater in Washington DC and sold out to a crowd of over 400.

"I am so happy to see the whole story of the Appalachian Trail told in such a profound and beautiful way," says Laurie Potteiger, who is the Information Services Manager of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. "It is such a gift to the Appalachian Trail, and one of the greatest gifts that has been given to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy."

Filmmaker, Sam Henegar, self funded the project in the hopes of increasing appreciation for the AT and describes the making of the film as a labor of love. "One thing that amazes me about the AT is its ability to bring folks together from all walks of life. In a lot ways, I believe the AT project reflects positive qualities of American life that sometimes go unrecognized such as selflessness, devotion to public service, and stewardship for natural resources. I hope these positive qualities translate on screen," says Henegar.

With the upcoming release of Robert Redford's "A Walk in the Woods," based on Bill Bryson's book, the AT is going to get a lot of screen time. Given it's popular reception, "The Appalachian Trail: An American Legacy" is poised to become an independent hit.

The film is now available on DVD and Bluray, streaming online, and for theatrical and public-event (non-theatrical) screenings; all this can be found at the film's official website: www.atlegacyfilm.com. A portion of all revenue goes to support the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

The Appalachian Trail is one of the largest volunteer projects in the world, runs through 14 states, and is a unit of the National Park Service. The Appalachian Trail is one of the most successful public/private partnerships in American history.
