This classic film documents the extraordinary celestial calendar created by ancient North American Indians, and rediscovered by artist Anna Sofaer, high on Fajada Butte at the mouth of Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. The "dagger" is the only known site in the world that marks the extreme positions of both the moon and the sun. The Sun Dagger explores the complex culture of the Anasazi Indians, who constructed the calendar and thrived both spiritually and materially in the harsh environment of Chaco Canyon a thousand years ago. Robert Redford narrates this story of mystery and discovery, joined by noted mythologist Joseph Campbell.
