KUED brings the history of this iconic Salt Lake City setting to life in a new documentary, Temple Square. Produced and directed by independent filmmaker Issac Goeckeritz, the hour-long documentary takes viewers on a journey deep into the history of one of the nation’s most photographed settings. “While the ‘big stories’ of the Tabernacle and the Salt Lake Temple are fairly well known, we have found many personal, smaller stories that give life to the setting,” says Goeckeritz, who has produced a number of award-winning documentaries in collaboration with KUED. “It becomes a story of grand visions humanized by small and important gestures.”
Documentary filmmaker Issac Goeckeritz began producing programs with KUED in 2007. His films have included Brigham Street: Salt Lake City’s Grand Boulevard, Ogden: Junction City of the West and Street Vets, for which he was awarded a PBS Emmy. Temple Square is Goeckeritz’s third installment in a series that examines place and architecture in Salt Lake City. Through these films, Goeckeritz has enjoyed researching the history of the places we live and finding inspiration on how to better our community.
