At first glance, Iowa, located equidistant between New York and L.A., hardly would seem to be the place where one would launch a project focused on the history of the motion picture. In actuality, however, Iowans have a deep-rooted connection to the movies—both as creators and consumers. "Hollywood in the Heartland" celebrates Iowa's relationship with the movie industry through an examination of the people and places related to the development and consumption of motion pictures.
