Rainbow Walks: The First Trail

In this short family film, children hike first through a field and then through the woods, searching for every color in the rainbow. They find red, orange, yellow, and green, but indigo and violet prove harder to locate...

This rainbow walk takes place at the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center in Darden Towe Park in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Director Statement

"Rainbow Walks" is a documentary of a day spent on nature trails, looking for every color in the rainbow. I hope to develop the idea into a television show for children, one in which we would travel and learn about new places and their rainbows of colors in nature. I recently was a guest on a Virginia PBS show, and I am working towards a PBS proposal with a crew and with sections on ecology and identifying the plants we find.
