Description

"Produced at the behest of FRD as means of supporting his controversial New Deal policies, the four films collected in this videocassette provide an accurate, eloquent record of the people and the land if the united States during the 1930s. Transcending state-ordained propaganda, these striking works - filmed by some of the industry's most talented craftsmen and accompanied by the exquisite musical scores of several of the nation's foremost composers - dramatizes the common man anad woman's struggle for survival and their valient crusade to repair an American dream shattered by economic and ecological hardship" (-Videotape jacket)
