Kelly & Tammy Rundle filmed at several archaeological sites related to the Ioway people for "Lost Nation: The Ioway 2". Blood Run site in northwest Iowa was among them and is featured in the documentary.
Kelly & Tammy Rundle's award-winning documentary Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 is an Official Selection Arkhaios Cultural Heritage & Archaeology Film Festival and will screen on October 23, 2014 at the Coligny Theater in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
The festival offers three days (October 23-25) of fascinating films from around the world. With a dozen Archaeological Film Festivals in Europe, and just one on the west coast in the United States, the Arkhaios Festival represents an exciting opportunity for the east coast, and Hilton Head Island.
Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 was also selected among 113 entries from 24 countries for The Archaeology Channel International Film Festival which was held in Eugene, Oregon in early 2014. The documentary was an Official Selection at the Landlocked Film Festival in August 2013 and won the Best Feature-Length Documentary award at the Iowa Independent Film Festival in October 2013 with representatives of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma in attendance. The documentary films premiered in Iowa City at the Museum of Natural History in March 2013 with members of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma appearing for the special event.
