presents a feature-length documentary on DVD by MARTIN SCHLIESSMANN and JOHN BRUNE

Why A Documentary About Sturgis?

Sturgis, South Dakota hosts the world's oldest and largest motorcycle rally, but it is also rich with American history and American Indian folklore. It also shares history with soldiers, agriculture, and is the birthplace of our National Anthem. "Why Sturgis?" presents an unprecedented look at this Black Hills community, featuring the first complete biography of the town's namesake, Col. Samuel D. Sturgis (a famous Civil War Brigadier General), as well as the rally's beginnings, tourism economy, and an opportunity to see this small town without 500,000 bikers.

Thunder Press says: "I would recommend a viewing of the DVD to anyone heading out to the Sturgis Rally who wants to add some real historical depth to the experience!"

Robb Report MotorCycling, Aug/Sept 2007 says: "This well-written feature length documentary presents an in-depth and fascinating look at the Black Hills community"
