Power and the Land

The daily activities of a dairy farming family in Ohio are observed in Joris Ivens’s classic film. The majestic photography elevates the farmers to iconic figures of Americana, their diligence rewarded by the messianic government in the form of home electricity. The film was produced at the behest of FDR as a means of supporting his controversial New Deal policies and provides an accurate, eloquent record of the people and the land of the United States during that period. Directed by Joris Ivens. Produced by the United States Film Service for the Rural Electrification Administration.

Introduced by Tom Nastick, Producer, Public Programs, National Archives.
