Directed by Randy M Salo

In rural South Carolina, WWII Marine veteran Jim Green has created a ramshackle museum around what he claims are artifacts from a 34 million year old civilization of reptilian humanoids.
Fulfilling a childhood promise, Jim’s grandson Randy convinces a series of scientists to visit his grandfather’s backyard archeological site, with unexpected results.
The Dragons of Jim Green brings to life Jim’s models, arcane diagrams, and an epic poem – which tell of intelligent, highly-advanced beings who self-destructed through greed and war.
Both dramatically focused and universal in scope, Dragons is about the human need for understanding and recognition, the capacity of the imagination to heal, and the multifaceted nature of truth.
