LETTERS FROM THE BIG MAN
A FILM BY CHRISTOPHER MUNCH
USA 2011 • 115 minutes

Friday, June 17th 2 PM Lake Placid Center for the Arts, $10
Sarah Smith, an artist and government hydrologist, sets out on a post-fire stream survey in a remote part of southwestern Oregon. In the course of her journey through this ancient and ecologically diverse land, she unwittingly finds herself interacting with a sasquatch man, and a mutual curiosity ensues.
As their friendship deepens, Sarah must take bold steps to protect his privacy as well as her own.

Letters From the Big Man
Short Synopsis
Following a painful breakup, Sarah Smith (LILY RABE) embarks on a post-fire
stream survey for the Forest Service in southern Oregon. A journey down a wild and scenic river leads her to a remote wilderness surrounded by scorched landscapes. Here she first senses being followed by a presence that will not reveal itself. Visitation from the “big man” (ISAAC C. SINGLETON JR.) continues, more overtly, at the remote cabin to which Sarah repairs to write up her fieldwork. A budding romance with a wilderness advocate (JASON BUTLER HARNER) she met on her trip leads to surprising revelations about the government and sasquatch, and conflicting agendas that culminate in Sarah leaving civilization behind
completely in order to be close to, and observe, “the
sasquatch people.”
