Documentary Films

The Foundation's Dakota Institute has produced three highly-acclaimed documentary films, the first two featuring former North Dakota Governors.

"When the Landscape is Quiet Again: The Legacy of Art Link" showcases the agrarian values of Governor Link, who served from 1973 to 1980 and helped ensure that the "one time harvest" of coal in western North Dakota would be followed by land reclamation.

"The Charisma of Competence: The Achievement of William L. Guy" reveals how Governor Guy helped create the new Democratic-NPL Party, while bringing government into the modern era.

"Mr. Bubble: The Harold Schafer Story", is all about North Dakota's foremost entrepreneur, whose Gold Seal Company produced household products used in virtually every American home at its peak. In addition, Schafer almost single-handedly created the state's tourism industry through development of Medora as the gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National park in the Badlands of North Dakota.

All Dakota Institute films are produced in partnership with Prairie Public, which airs the documentaries and assists with regional distribution. The films were directed by Clay Jenkinson and produced by David Borlaug, with production done at Makoche Studios in Bismarck, under the direction of David Swenson.
