Doc about Malheur standoff to debut today
Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs presents a free screening of "No Man's Land," a documentary about the 40-day occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6 in Library Hall.
With unfettered access, filmmaker David Byars gives a detailed, on-the-ground account of the 2016 standoff between protestors occupying Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and federal authorities. "No Man's Land" documents the occupation from inception to its dramatic demise and tells the story of those on the inside of this movement — the ideologues, the disenfranchised and the dangerously quixotic, attempting to uncover what draws Americans to the edge of revolution.
