The Hoover Dam clearly holds a place in this series and the documentary will immerse viewers in the world of the 1930s American West. Taking a look at the challenges and promise of the dam project, the documentary combines commentary, archival footage, and analysis of the controversy surrounding the building of the dam. Join us to learn more about this colossal construction project. This screening is free and open to the public.
