The Barn Raisers historical documentary feature film tells the story of barns in the Upper Midwest by examining them through the lens of architecture.
What do barn settings, styles, methods and materials tell us about the people who built them, the life they lived, and the role these vanishing country cathedrals played in the settling and building of a growing nation?
Barns were constructed by farmer/craftsmen, professional builders who traveled from job to job and even architects like Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Barn Raisers paints a cinematic portrait of barns and builders, and reminds us that these remnants from America's rural past are still here to be appreciated and experienced.
