Death of the Dream

One Sheet: 

Death of the Dream: Farmhouses in the Heartland is a story of America's rural past and a forgotten lifestyle. The vanishing farmhouses of the Midwest and the rich lives that lived in them are the subject of a lyrical EMMY-award winning PBS documentary. Based on the book by St. Paul photographer and essayist William Gabler, Death of the Dream is told by historians, farm experts, and (most importantly) the people who lived "The Dream" of life on the farm. 

Death of the Dream traces the evolution of the classic farmhouse from its humble origins, through the high-tech present, and charts the impact that changing economics have had on the lives of Midwestern farm families. Sketched with humor, sympathy, and a good dose of frankness, these stories capture the dignity of a vanishing lifestyle. The film is narrated by Linda Kelsey; featuring poets Robert Bly, Leo Dangel; writers Bill Holm, Paul Gruchow. This CD features the original music commissioned for the film. 

Reviews: 

"Steve Heitzeg's music has all of the attributes of a venerable farmhouse: elegance, simplicity, and unpretentiousness. Rooted in the soil of the Midwest, these hand-crafted originals are made lovingly from wood and stone. Come into the kitchen and listen to the fiddle play." - John Whitehead

I watched the PBS documentary of the same name at about the same time my grandparents and aunt and uncle were selling off their dairy herd in Ohio. The documentary was excellent . . . sad and moving, made more so by its haunting music. I had looked for the soundtrack locally for years and finally found it on Amazon. Now I'm enjoying listening to it over and over. - R. McKee
