Back to God's Country: The Films of Nell Shipman features two extraordinary films starring early independent producer, writer, conservationist and star Nell Shipman were shot on location in the frozen wilds of Canada and the arid Mojave Desert. Shipman, a fearless free spirit on and off screen, was ably supported by brilliant cameraman Joseph B. Walker, who went on to shoot many of Frank Capra's classic films.
In Back to God's Country Shipman is a beautiful young wife trapped on an ice-bound ship. The captain, a murderous fugitive, will stop at nothing to have his way with Nell. With only the help of a ferocious dog named Wapi, she must stave off his advances and escape with her severely wounded husband to safety.
Something New is a thrilling and hilarious Western where the hero comes to the rescue of the kidnapped girl in a 1920 Maxwell sedan! Chased by bandits on horseback across rocky terrain, Shipman, boyfriend/co-star Van Tuyle and "Laddie" (her pet collie) survive some of the most amazing (and real) stunts ever attempted in a roadster. Something New is an offbeat and wonderful addition to film history.

An Explanation of Home, Classroom, and Public Performance Rights
US and Canadian nonprofit educational institutions that wish to show a film publicly outside of a scheduled class need to purchase DVDs, DVD-Rs, and Blu-rays at the institutional rate — which grants 3-year in-house streaming rights and an on-site public performance license. This in-house streaming license is for a term of three years from the date of purchase and grants the purchasing institution the right to stream over a single secure server with a password-protected connection. Streaming access must be strictly limited to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. Streaming rights extensions can be negotiated with Milestone after the initial three-year term has lapsed. Milestone retains the right to terminate this agreement at any time. No broadcast, Internet or other rights are granted or implied. These rights are for on-site use only per the license agreement.
Similarly, US and Canadian nonprofit educational institutions that wish to show a film publicly outside of a scheduled class via Milestone’s streaming site must contact Milestone to arrange a separate public performance license. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
US and Canadian nonprofit educational institutions that wish to screen a DVD, DVD-R, or Blu-ray they already own in an open showing must purchase a public performance license. For more information, please email email@example.com.
