Film Series: The Dust Bowl

2012. USA. Dir: Ken Burns.Documentary. 120 min.

For those who doubt civilization’s environmental impact, here’s a timely reminder from America’s not-so-distant past: overzealous post-WWI farming, amplified by the Depression, culminated in disaster on a plague-like scale. Prolific doc maestro Burns unpacks this harrowing history from several perspectives, including oral testimony from the few remaining survivors. Intro by producer Julie Dunfrey.
