The Prairie Trilogy w/ filmmaker Rob Nilsson
A special screening of a newly restored batch of documentaries that delve into the history and life of Henry Martinson, a 97 year old man (in 1978) who was a lifetime labor organizer and Socialist activist.
Filmmaker Rob Nilsson will present a special screening of this newly restored trio of documentaries co-directed with John Hanson.
Thematically related to their 1978 dramatic feature Northern Lights (winner of the Camera d’Or at Cannes), the three documentaries revolve around North Dakota labor history and subject Henry Martinson, then 97 years old and a lifetime labor organizer and Socialist activist.
These films find hope for the future by excavating a radical past.
