Following the story of the Tar Creek mining site, which encompasses Picher, Oklahoma, and several other small towns along the Kansas/Oklahoma border, Lydia Moyer’s video examines how one of the primary producers of metal for bullets during the first World War became one of the biggest environmental disasters in the country. Moyer produced the video with support from the Wexner Center’s Film/Video Studio Program. (9 mins., video)
