Through the Lens

Through the Lens is the flagship film program of Utah Film Center. Since launching in 2011, in partnership with KUER 90.1’s RadioWest, the series has presented film screenings and in-depth post-film discussions featuring fascinating documentaries, spectacular narratives, and special film events.

This spring, Through the Lens is taking you on an intimate journey of camaraderie. Our season begins with a Chilean couple’s extraordinary tale of love and persistence in the face of Alzheimer’s disease. From there, bundle up as we ride along with a group of women from The East and The West racing against climate change to be one of the last to trek the North Pole for Women’s History Month. The last stop drops you into Earth Month and the searing world of wildland firefighting in the Western US where your life depends on the direction of the wind and a fellow crew of smoke-breathing daredevils trying to hold the line. This is one trip you won’t want to miss.
