Troublesome Creek


A gentle, polite and very mid-western look at how a hard-working Iowa farm family loses their farm and sells it off in a mid-winter auction. Sounds boring, but the filmmaker manages to make it dramatic and insightful, because it is the filmmaker’s own family losing all they have. This very intimate window makes this film a real ticket into the deepest crevice of heartland America.
