The History of the American West Series currently includes three documentary films on western subjects set in the early 20th century West. Three additional film projects on the West are in pre-production and are forthcoming. Each of the first three films produced by Old Segundo in this series tracks the history of ordinary people and their stories of life in the developing New West. Each documentary is unique and original and brings first-hand stories to light of people and communities who add to our understanding of who America is as a nation and a people.
Based on research and oral history interviews, the narratives are told through the eyes of the men and women who bring their stories to life. Each film is a combination of never-before seen personal interviews, historic photographs and footage of people and places in the West as the United States emerges into the modern era.
