The Prairie Trilogy—PRAIRIE FIRE, REBEL EARTH, and SURVIVOR, co-directed by John Hanson and Rob Nilsson—tells the story of the late poet Henry Martinson and his life and times as a Socialist organizer.
“A gorgeously-shot work of documentary-as-historical corrective, which finds hope for the future through excavating a radical past,” the films were underwritten by the North Dakota Humanities Council and the North Dakota AFL-CIO.*
This week and next, Downtown Independent will present the 2K restoration of the Trilogy, and Rob Nilsson will be in attendance on October 19 and 20.
