The showing of the 3D film ‘America Wild’, about the National Parks of the USA, was a spectacular experience. Directed by Oscar-nominated Greg MacGillivray and produced by Shaun McGillivray, the film is enhanced by soundtrack with Leonard Cohen’s ‘Halleluyeh’ and Bruce Springsteen’s This Land is Your Land”, which added to the enjoyment of the film.
