Troublesome Creek: A Midwestern | 1997
"Troublesome Creek" tells its story through the eyes of the filmmaker Jeanne Jordan's family. We learn the Jordan's history through the years, much of it filled with the trappings of classic western mythology--good guys and bad guys, showdowns and victories. But the showdowns they face today are not with outlaws, but with modern day economics and politics. The Jordan family fights back with dignity, humor and intelligence. This story of resilience and courage in the face of overwhelming odds creates a portrait of an American family that confronts the very worst with their very best.
