ORD, NE – It has been called ‘masterful, ‘zen-like & meditative’, ‘a genre of its own’, and ‘spectacularly filmed’, and a ‘real, true look at ranching’.
This 100 percent Nebraska-made film OCEAN OF GRASS will be showing at the Golden Husk Theatre in Ord on Saturday, December 1 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, December 2 at 2:00 pm.
The Ocean of Grass film, conceived, produced and directed by Nebraska filmmaker Georg Joutras, tells a “story of honoring family, faith and community through perseverance, hard work, sacrifice, and ongoing stewardship of the land and care for its creatures,” all rolled up into the ranch experience. The story is a documentary capturing a year in the life of a 130-year-old Nebraska Sandhills ranch, the McGinn Ranch, Located in Custer County with narrative provided by the ranchers who have called this area home for generations.
“At a basic level, it can be simply stated as “a year in the life of a ranch,” says Mr. Joutras.
Joutras is a noted Nebraska photographer and author whose books are part of the permanent collection of the Nebraska Historical Society. Not only is the story line 100 percent Nebraska, so is the musical score. All the music was written specifically for the film by noted Nebraska composer/musician Tom Larson.
