 Description: THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the "Great Plow-Up," followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Vivid interviews with twenty-six survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom seen movie footage, bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and equally incredible human perseverance. It is also a morality tale about our relationship to the land that sustains us—a lesson we ignore at our peril.

Disclaimer: We hope that you will learn from each film, but we also encourage you to seek out a balanced source of information. For instance, many of the films are NOT balanced; some in fact may be inflammatory. So use your discretion and note when exaggerated strong negative adjectives or phrases are used in the films to promote fear, such usages as “disaster”,  “slaughterers”, “baby killers”, “dumb”, ”stupid”, ”tragedy”, ”catastrophe”, or “we are making a terrible mistake in our policies”. While you may agree with some of the negative language, most documented films with reliable sources use MODERATED adjectives. Also, most trustworthy films suggest information and solutions on how the human species can deal with our current and future problems, such as running out of resources and destroying valuable habitat.

Our policy is to use the Internet Movie Database ( whenever possible. IMDB uses ratings generated from citizens around the world. If you wish, you can register at IMDB and cast your vote. To help with your scheduling, we also will try to post the runtime for each film, and to provide you with some additional information (year, tagline/plot
