Troublesome Creek: A Midwestern
This Oscar-nominated documentary likens the American farmer to an endangered species. Indeed, the saga of director Jordan's parents' attempts to stave off bankers haunts as both a compelling heartland drama and touching meditation on loss. Interspliced into interview footage are clips from classic Hollywood Westerns, such as High Noon and Red River. Jordan narrates to further personalize the film.
