Run Time

50 minutes


THE DUST BOWL, which premieres on New Hampshire Public Television November 18th as a two-part, four-hour series, gets a special producers' cut 50-minute advanced screening in the Lincoln Theater at Red River Theatres on Wednesday, October 10th, at 7:30 pm as part of Red River's Birthday Bash Month Celebration. Burns, the film's writer and co-producer Dayton Duncan, and co-producer Julie Dunfey will be on hand for a post-screening discussion of the film and its topic.
This latest Ken Burns documentary chronicles the environmental catastrophe that, throughout the 1930s, destroyed the farmlands of the Great Plains, turned prairies into deserts and unleashed a pattern of massive, deadly dust storms that for many seemed to herald the end of the world.
The documentary chronicles this critical moment in American history in all its complexities and profound human drama. Its compelling interviews of 26 survivors may turn out to be the last recorded testimony of the generation that lived through the Dust Bowl. Filled with seldom seen movie footage, previously unpublished photographs, the songs of Woody Guthrie, and the observations of two remarkable women who left behind eloquent written accounts, the film is also a historical accounting of what happened and why during the 1930s on the southern Plains.
