Film Screening: The King of Roads

King of Roads explores the rich cultural, political and economic forces that prompted the creation and restoration of the historic Columbia River Highway. The film traces the story of the highway from its very beginnings with a gang of dreamers lead by Sam Hill and road engineer Sam Lancaster – two men who lived large lives, and built and spoke poetically – and through the eyes of artists, historians and Gorge residents of the past and present. The film is directed and produced by Michael Friend and John Hardham, who will be on hand to introduce the film, answer questions and sign the accompanying coffee-table book.
