Troublesome Creek (1995)

Steven Ascher, Jeanne Jordan


Filmmaker Jeanne Jordan narrates this portrait of her Midwest farm family. Working without script or reenactments of any kind, Jordan takes us within her family as they react to their bank's decision to call in their $70,000 loan, threatening the loss of their family farm. Jordan follows her family as they go about their day to day lives and investigates their deep ties to the land that has sustained them for 125 years. Jordan's video is a poignant testament to a way of life that was widespread not so long ago, a way of life in danger of extinction. Troublesome Creek: A Midwestern was nominated for an Academy award and won two prizes at the Sundance Film Festival.
