Film Screening: "The Ends of the Earth" 
Sunday, March 17th 
3:30pm - 5:30pm 

A new natural history film by John Grabowska on Alaska's Wild Peninsula. Premieres March 17 at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in the Warner Brothers Theater.

Explore the Alaska Peninsula, where bears outnumber people and the sockeye salmon run is the largest in the world. In "The Ends of the Earth," filmmaker John Grabowska reveals a wilderness of towering volcanoes, vast tundra and the greatest concentration of brown bears on earth. At the base of the peninsula lies Katmai National Park, a wilderness larger Yellowstone and Yosemite -- combined. Farther down the peninsula a giant volcanic caldera emerges on the horizon, so remote that more people climb Everest than visit Aniakchak. Environmental filmmaker John Grabowska takes us on an Odyssean voyage of outward adventure and inner reflection to The Ends of the Earth.
