For the Idahoan Squatchers

Bigfoot sightings expected in Ketchum Sun Valley Brokers

Film, lecture part of Sun Valley Center program
By :EXPRESS STAFF
As part of its ongoing multidisciplinary project Creatures, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts will be showing the documentary Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 6:30 p.m. The screening will be held at The Center in Ketchum. Admission is free and the movie lasts about an hour.
Jay Delaney's 2008 film follows two amateur Bigfoot researchers, Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton, as they try to track the legendary creature in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio. Along the way we see how the power of a dream can bring two men together in friendship and provide hope and meaning that transcend the harsh realities of life in a dying steel town.
The film was an official selection at multiple independent film festivals in 2008 and 2009. The Chicago Tribune called it "a story of enduring friendship and epic dreams."
The Center also presents Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, considered by many to be the nation's leading expert on Sasquatch, for a lecture on Thursday, Feb. 10, at 6:30 p.m.
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an example of a cryptid, a creature whose existence has been reported but is unconfirmed by the scientific community. Cryptids are at the heart of The Center's current visual arts exhibition, Creatures: From Bigfoot to the Yeti Crab. Prior to the film screening, The Center is offering a free guided tour of the exhibition at 5:30 p.m.
