Daisy Cook Remembers (Farm Life in America)

Daisy Cook Remembers (Farm Life in America)

"Recommended. Through Daisy Cook's sensitive treatment of her memories, American life in a simpler time comes alive to viewers today." -National Media Review
Through a series of detailed paintings about her life growing up on the farm, Daisy Cook takes us back to a life before electricity; before most of the modern conveniences we often take for granted today. First she reminisces about all her various chores: harvesting the wheat, making hay, preparing meals and piecing a quilt. Then she fondly recalls square dances at her grandmother's, the old one-room schoolhouse and the community fair. Don't be surprised if a tear fills your eye when she touchingly describes a painting that deals with the death of a youngster; life wasn't always easy in the "good old days." Thanks to the sensitive filmmaking skills of producer John Altman, Daisy Cook's memories, which are a deep part of America's memories, need never be forgotten. Produced by Master's Mark, Inc. 98/98DE IJSCA 15 min.
