Mysterious Circumstance: The Death of Meriwether Lewis

Entangled versions of Meriwether Lewis's 1809 death at a remote wilderness inn are imagined by his friend Alexander Wilson during a tense encounter with the only witness to the American explorer's final night alive, Priscilla Grinder.

“Director-writer Clark Richey has created a well-executed exploration of a 200 year old cold-case – the mysterious death of 19th Century American explorer, Meriwither Lewis. Unfolding from several different viewpoints, the film leaves the viewer to decide for themselves which account of Lewis’ death is true. Richey smartly uses his limited budget to create a film with noteworthy production values and distinctive performances. Congratulations to Mr. Richey.” — Hudson Hickman, Emmy-winning Film & Television Producer
