September 24, 2008, Fargo, N.D.—A new film documentary about the legacy of former North Dakota Governor Arthur Link will premiere at a public screening on Monday, September 29, at 7 p.m. at the Fargo Theatre. The screening is free and open to the public.

“When the Landscape is Quiet Again: The Legacy of Art Link” chronicles Link’s agrarian and conservation idealism as coal development began in North Dakota in the early 1970’s. Prairie Public will air the film on its television network October 9.

The film was directed by Clay Jenkinson and David Swenson and produced by The Dakota Institute of the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation of Washburn.

The film includes extensive interviews with Art and Grace Link, archival news footage and photographs, and interviews with former staffers and political figures who reflect on Art’s leadership legacy.

“This film has been a goal of mine for years, and through our new Dakota Institute and generous underwriters, we are now ready to present to the public a documentary that we hope captures the spirit of this remarkable North Dakota leader,” said Jenkinson. The film is the first documentary from
The Dakota Institute, directed by Clay Jenkinson, with future projects planned.

Jenkinson will be at the public screenings to introduce the film, along with Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation President David Borlaug and Prairie Public Broadcasting President and CEO John Harris. The events are sponsored by North Dakota Farmers Union and Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of North
Dakota, along with The Dakota Institute and Prairie Public Broadcasting.
