Welcome to Our Site!
Please enjoy our web site. We suggest you stop first in the section on the making of the classic 1940 documentary Power and the Land. In addition to an abundance of historical photographs and streaming video interviews, this web segment includes original essays, published for the first time on this very web site. These include such topics as rural electrification and women and technology and biographical essays on Pare Lorentz, Douglas Moore, Stephen Vincent Benet, Arthur Ornitz, Lora Hays, and Joris Ivens. Then we’ll share with you in another segment how we made Power for the Parkinsons. We will also introduce you to our second documentary – a sequel film - The Parkinsons: 1940-2005.

Please note that to maintain a standard of high quality resolution, the streaming videos should be accessed using a high-speed (cable) modem. We have not provided a separate dial-up link for the streaming of these videos. We discovered that these files (in order to accommodate the lower modem speed) required a degree of compression that we felt unsatisfactorily compromise the quality of their resolution and color. While it is possible for someone to load them using a dial up connection, this will take a good deal of time and may not play properly. If you have a dial-up modem, we respectfully suggest trying to access our web site through a public library, or (if you are students or faculty) through your high-speed college or university network. We apologize for any inconvenience here, but we want our visitors to this web site to have a first-class trip. With the exception of the streaming video, all other features of the web site should easily available with a dial up connection.
