OCEAN OF GRASS
The American cattle ranch, an icon of the United States, projects an enticing historical vision of hard working people living close to nature on the plains of the west. The McGinn Ranch first settled in the 1870's, is such a place. Moving into its 5th generation, the ranch encompasses all that makes America great: an appreciation of heroic effort, the love of family, friends, and country, and doing whatever it takes to survive. It is a landscape of individuals with unique personalities.
The documentary film, OCEAN OF GRASS - LIFE ON A NEBRASKA SANDHILLS RANCH, is a visually stunning organic journey about life all rolled up into the ranch experience. The conflicts and issues in the film are real but not overblown. In the end, the film is an honest and personal look at being who you are and treating all creatures and the land with respect.

It is also an experiential, immersive documentary capturing a year in the life of a 130 year old Nebraska Sandhills ranch, The cinematography submits to the lyrical and timeless feeling of the American Great Plains, and presents the intriguing personalities of those who choose this sparse, rugged lifestyle. The film narrative is provided by the ranchers who have called this area home for generations.
