Some say that the drought conditions plaguing the West are worse than those of the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s. Limited rainfall, reduced grazing lands, and more consumers than available water had a devastating effect on small ranching and farming communities. In the 45-minute documentary Droughtland, director Steffan Tubbs explores how drought conditions have changed the lives of farmers, ranchers, and residents living in southeastern Colorado. Through moving testimony, the documentary sheds light on the personal and political ramifications of drought and raises important questions about water rights. It is a must-see for every Westerner.
