STG presents An Evening with Ken Burns at the Neptune on Friday, November 9, 2012.
Spend an evening with legendary PBS documentarian Ken Burns. Preview portions of The Dust Bowl, followed by a conversation with the filmmaker.
About the film 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.
