“The Buffalo King” Screening

A documentary has been made of an ancestor of ours, James “Scotty” Philip, who is credited with saving the American bison from extinction. Filmmaker, Justin Koehler, created a documentary covering this story and it has been recognized as the Best Feature Documentary at the South Dakota Film Festival 2013, DocuWest Film Festival 2013 selection, and most recently, a 2014 selection for the Fargo Film Festival.

Here is the official trailer for the Film, “The Buffalo King”:


We are excited to announce that there will be a screening of this documentary at the Fox Pavilion in Hays on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. After the screening, a talk-back session will be held, giving the audience an opportunity to talk to the filmmaker, Justin, and other individuals involved in the film making process. We hope to see you there!
