Movie Info

At once intimate and epic, HANNA RANCH tells the story of four generations of a cattle ranching family who suffer the tensions that threaten to destroy their land and their way of life in today's American West. Featured in Eric Schlosser's book Fast Food Nation (2001) and dubbed the "eco-cowboy", charismatic Colorado rancher Kirk Hanna believed a balance could be maintained between the need for land conservation, traditional ranching and the demands of a growing urban population. His opinion was so widely sought and respected, many even saw him as a future governor of Colorado. But when Hanna's dream of harmony and sustainability collided with the reality of family conflict and urban sprawl, he was ultimately overwhelmed. His legacy and the battles he fought live on in family and friends who lovingly recount his heroic story as they keep their commitment to the Hanna Ranch and the protection of the open range.(C) Official Site
