Ogden… It’s All Within Reach

There’s nothing like living amongst nature’s serenity and beauty and enjoying city perks at the same time. That’s the vision behind this Gadi Leshem-produced documentary which narrates the Renaissance Village project on which Gadi Leshem is a consultant.

This film highlights the stunning beauty of Ogden City in Utah and the unique characteristics that make it one of the pleasant places to live in. After all, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a view of captivating mountains and have, at hand, recreational activities such as skiing, mountain biking, and kayaking easily within reach? In this film, Gadi Leshem proposes something more for Ogden City - a bigger vision and dream that would allow Ogden residents to maximize the beauty of the city.

Through the eyes of the Ogden City mayor Matthew Godfrey, businessman Curt Geiger, and entrepreneur Chris Peterson this film expounds on the idea of having an affordable and larger home and enjoying the luxury of waking up to a meadow with singing birds and being able to enjoy numerous recreational activities every single day. While Ogden City is in itself blessed with the extraordinary beauty of nature, it’s also one of the few cities that combine attractions and facilities such as mountain ski resorts, universities, an old historic town, and more.

With the Renaissance Village project, Ogden residents may soon enjoy panoramic views of the mountains and alpine forest from a gondola, have a cup of coffee with friends in an open-air cafe against a stunning backdrop of the peaceful Ogden River, and scour through shops amidst the mesmerizing beauty of nature.
