What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we're "from"? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries--one from each of our 50 states--that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home.
It was the past that brought Dave to present-day Montana. His paleontology work over the past 20 years in the wilderness of Big Sky country has provided him a unique insight to the Montana of 75 million years ago. While focused mainly on changes in the Earth's crust that take millennia, Dave also observes more rapid changes in the evolution of his once sleepy college town.
*States of America is created and produced by Brad Barber.
*Montana is directed, shot, and edited by John Bills, with music by Micah Dahl Anderson. Title design by Brian Turley and Mark T. Lewis.
