Nature Photography by Nadine Vaughan
“Native Land: Lost in the Mystery of Time” is a film that begs to be born.
An historical fiction that is conceived in truth, this story emerges from
stories told by a wise woman whose remarkable journey and mysterious
family origins stretch from the time of the old south into the inner psyches
of present day clansmen.
Catherine's story serves as a record of deeply personal experiences;
of racial intolerance, an unforgiving family, and of the ultimate coming
together of a community. Told through the symbolism of a dark Florida
forest and an enigmatic family of Native Americans; it brilliantly blends
humor and hope, beckoning all who want to venture beyond the known.”
Principles at Native Land Productions include: Nadine Vaughan
(CEO/Executive Producer); David D'Ardenne (Technical
Coordinator); Rick Traum (Consulting producer); Don Flynn
