Raven Industries, a Sioux Falls, S.D.-based manufacturer of precision agriculture products, high-altitude balloons, plastic film and sheeting, and radar systems, was recently featured in an HBO documentary.
Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan, the HBO documentary “Our Towns” debuted on Tuesday, April 13.
According to an official press release shared by HBO, “Our Towns” is a portrait of America and how the rise of civic and economic reinvention is transforming small cities and towns across the country. Based on the bestselling book Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America by journalists James and Deborah Fallows, the documentary spotlights ingenious local initiatives and explores how a sense of community and common language of change can help people and towns find a different path to the future.
