Film explores sheep industry

The public is invited to attend a premier showing of the Charles West documentary film “Berrago: A Sagebrush Journey” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 26 at the Nevada State Museum, 600 N. Carson St., Carson City. Reno historian Jack Sutton will introduce the film and answer questions at the conclusion. The premier is part of the museum’s Frances Humphrey Lecture Series. There is no charge for admission.

The Charles West film is a contemporary look at the sheep industry in northeastern Nevada. The film crew followed the Ellison Ranching Corporation band of sheep through all four seasons to document the cycle of life and never-ending journey of the Great Basin sheep.

The Nevada State Museum actively engages people in understanding Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. The museum collects, preserves, studies and shares this heritage through exhibits, educational programs, publications and research. Exhibits highlight the state’s geology, history, Coin Press No. 1, a replica walk-through mine and ghost town, and the U.S.S. Nevada silver service. The museum is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Admission is $3 for adults, $2.50 for seniors and free for children under 18.
