Favorite Sierra Documentaries?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Hello all

There is a film called the "Manzanar Fishing Club" that documents The Japanese-Americans interned at Manzanar during WWII. How they slipped under the wire and fished the creeks coming out of the Sierra. Even cross-countrying into the high country.

Pretty cool...

This might not apply directly, but the National Parks series by Ken Burns has some excellent use of the Sierra. My favorite is the Ansel Adams and Kings Canyon formation. Highly recommended.

Valley Uprising and Free Solo. On YouTube, Apeman's documentary of his JMT hike with his daughter was almost as good as those professional films. (Anybody think he will read this? :D ) There was also a YouTube video of this guy hiking and fishing the JMT with his two young sons that I enjoyed even though it was long.
