- A carefuly selected film from Hymar-Fulton Text Films
An in depth probe of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon, those legendary giant nocturnal hairy man-like beings that continue to roam vast wilderness areas of the Northwestern United States & Canada. Though done with a somewhat humorous intent, SASQUATCH AMONGST US raises several serious questions concerning mankind's often elitist and threatening realtionship with these amazing creatures.
"I am firmly convinced that the Sasquatch do exist. I have a hunch that they are an advanced
form related to homo sapien which managed to avoid a huge storm of cosmic radiation centuries ago, a torrent so intense that it seared the fur off of mankind's direct ancestiors. Thus we developed a dire need for clothing which mushroomed into a full-scale preoccupation with the physical plane. Our naked ancestors' materialist obsession led down a trail of god-complexes and compettion gone berserk while the Sasquatch developed mental powers in ways we've only recently begun to properly explore."
