Movies filmed in North Dakota including Dakota (1945), Fargo (1995), and the documentary My Father’s Garden (1996). None of the scenes in the popular movieFargo was filmed there. Additionally, the movie was loosely based on two true events that happened in Minnesota, not North Dakota. But the wood chipper used in the movie is now on display at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitor Center.
NPR Oil Rush Series Inspires Songwriter
"The Great Plains Oil Rush" from NPR inspired Chris Santella of Portland, Oregon to write 7 songs. Chris recorded them all in one day and now has posted them to YouTube. My favorite is “Cows” (starts 16 1/2 minutes into the recording).
In his original email to me in March, Chris wrote:
“I have to say that I was mesmerized by your reporting from North Dakota on developments in the Bakken region… So much so, in fact, that I noted some of the people you interviewed (and their stories) and used them as a jumping off point to compose a little song cycle – a sketch in 7 songs… I’d love to share them with you—not because they’ll be so wonderful, but because it might be interesting for you to see your reporting channeled into a different medium.”
Srsly people, I need to meet people in Grand Forks! be my frieeeeend.
Adorable, little North Dakota has found a new home in the very far northwest tip of the US on this rearranged map. But, luckily, ND has kept its favorite neighbor nearby—awww, South Dakota, what would we be without you? Probably just Dakota.
