NORTHERN LIGHTS (USA, 1978, 95 min.)

The formation of the Nonpartisan League, a grassroots populist movement of the northern Midwest in the years before World War I, is the subject of this semi-fictional film. Restored to its original black and white brilliance, it chronicles the experiences of North Dakota farmers who, facing a bleak and blustery winter in 1915, were forced to organize against the bankers and out-of-state corporations exploiting them and their land. Directed and produced by John Hanson and Rob Nilsson.
