Documentary Films
The Dakota Institute has produced two highly-acclaimed documentary films, both featuring former North Dakota Governors. When the Landscape is Quiet Again: The Legacy of Art Link showcases the agrarian values of Governor Link, who served from 1973 to 1980 and helped ensure that the "one time harvest" of coal in western North Dakota would be followed by land reclamation. The Charisma of Competence: The Achievement of William L. Guy reveals how Governor Guy helped create the new Democratic-NPL Party, while bringing government into the modern era.

All Dakota Institute films are produced in partnership with Prairie Public, which airs the documentaries and assists with regional distribution. The Institute's Clay Jenkinson is writer, director and narrator of the films. Production is managed by David Swenson of Makoche Studios in Bismarck.
