Screening Description:

Survey the causes of the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, when the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. See vivid interviews with 26 survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom-seen movie footage, that bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and equally incredible perseverance. The documentary is also a morality tale about our relationship to the land that sustains us — a lesson we ignore at our peril.

The Art Theatre of Long Beach was originally built in 1924, the interiors and exterior have been lovingly restored and updated to current state of the art in comfort, convenience and entertainment technology including the addition of a wine bar and coffee bar. The Art offers a completely unique theatre experience of gourmet sight, sound, and taste.
