Built for the People is a moving feature documentary that captures the impact of the Tennessee Valley Authority in America’s history through eyes of six every day people who feel forever changed but its mark in their personal history. The film’s journey takes us inside the lives of an Iraqi war veteran, museum curator, marine biologist, Cherokee Appalachian poet, the TVA’s first African American foreman, and father and son rock musicians. Each has a strong and far reaching tie to the landmark events that make up the TVA’s history - - ties they feel just as strongly today. Theirs are stories of family, sacrifice, hard work and pride.
