Quote:
"Great Grand Mother [...] attempts to recover the histories of Prairie women through diaries, letters, and manuscripts. The film integrates archived photographs, interviews with five contemporary Prairie women reminiscing about their lives in oral-history mode, historical re-enactments, and shots of prairie landscapes."
-- Elizabeth Anderson
