THE PEOPLE'S HOUSE, 18min., Documentary, USA
Directed by Libby Roberts, Autumn Afton, Ella Rowland
Montana’s capitol, designed at the end of the 19th century, was intended to be the “people’s house,” uniting diverse interests across what was then just a territory to form the 41st state. But does it continue to live up to those principles today? Does it still speak to all Montanans? These student filmmakers present The People’s House, a documentary analyzing the past and present of the state Capitol to answer the question: who's in and who's out at the people's house?
