6 BROTHERS is an hour-long, Emmy-nominated documentary by McKenzie County native Daniel Stenberg. It focuses on the experiences of his grandfather’s family as homesteaders in McKenzie County. Weaving together interviews, archival footage, and letters, the film shows how this ordinary family survived the Great Depression, became deeply involved in World War II, and experienced many other joys and challenges of life during one of America’s most intriguing time periods. Further, it touches on how their lives and experiences have helped to shape future generations.
6 BROTHERS has been screened at five college campuses throughout North and South Dakota, the North Dakota Heritage Center and shown on Prairie Public Television. At this screening Daniel Stenberg will be in attendance to give background about the film, answer questions, and display some of the material (e.g. old letters, country school memorabilia, military records and farm documents) that helped in his research for the film.
