as it is - A Grand Canyon VR Documentary

Journey down the Colorado River to see the Grand Canyon as too few do, from the bottom up. Run its biggest rapids, explore its slot canyons, and meet the Navajo and Hopi activists working to protect sacred sites threatened by a controversial development.     

Over 100 years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt asked us to leave the Grand Canyon “as it is”.   Among the crown jewels of the United States’ national park system, Grand Canyon is protected far beyond most public lands, but an unprecedented billion dollar development threatens to change the wilderness nature of the Grand Canyon forever.

Known as the Escalade Proposal, the plan outlines a tramway resort that would bring up to 10,000 tourists per day down to the Confluence, a place held sacred for millennia.  Discover a story as big as the Canyon itself and learn why wild places need our protection now more than ever.
