A Walk in the Park with David Vassar


To celebrate the National Park Centennial, Presidio Dialogues presents a film retrospective of Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning writer and director, David Vassar. Join us on an epic journey through some of the nation’s most magnificent parks where David has written and directed more than a dozen films. Film clips from Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Death Valley National Parks will be presented.

“David’s work all begins in his deeply personal responses to the parks, but these exquisite selections from his three decades as an award-winning documentary filmmaker are universal in their appeal. Our capacity crowd at the Officers’ Club was inspired, delighted, surprised, and moved.”                                                  ~ Brad Rosenstein, Program Producer, Presidio Trust
“David Vassar is a riveting and distinctive storyteller, both in person and on the big screen. He is a champion of these great lands which we, the people, own.”
