PBS INDIES | Sixty-Four Flood: A Temporary Home | PBS

Floyd Rider talks about life in a “flood home.” He died shortly after filming last year.

On June 7-8, 1964, a driving rain buckled dams and flooded vehicles on the Blackfeet Reservation, sweeping crying children from mothers’ arms, and ferrying homes and bodies across the prairie. Our mobile, documentary narrative tells the story of the worst natural disaster in Montana history: the 1964 flood on the Blackfeet Reservation.
