OTTUMWA — A unique film experience is coming to Ottumwa this week.
“Iowa Land and Sky,” a production of Iowa Public Television, is a three-part documentary series which features landscapes and communities around the state. Much of the series was filmed with the use of aerial drones, offering sweeping views of Iowa hills, fields, rivers and towns.
The series also discusses Iowa’s geology and climate, and how the state will have to address effects of climatic changes, such as increased flooding, which can affect agriculture and disrupt communities.
As part of a celebration of the series’ release, Iowa Public Television will host a screening of the documentary at Bridge View Center later this week. The event will begin with a talk about the Eddyville Sand Prairie area, which will be given by Annette Wittrock from Wapello County Conservation.
The event will run from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 14 and is free and open to the public. Some refreshments will be provided. Visit iptv.org/events to register.
