The Great Lakes Film Festival in Erie, Pennsylvania recently featured the documentary about the Niagara Escarpment. Kuhns, who is also a writer and geologist in Door County, also received an award for the movie at the Hollywood International Independent Documentary Film Festival. In addition to that, “Escarpment” was selected by the Miami Independent Film Festival and was a semi-finalist at the Cine Festival in Los Angeles earlier this year.
