The People’s House: The Story of the Oklahoma State Capitol

Politicians, activists, artists, and civil servants come together to restore the Oklahoma State Capitol building to match the state's noble and, perhaps surprising, trail-blazing roots.

"The People’s House: The Story of the Oklahoma State Capitol" is a short documentary showcasing the long history and significance of the State Capitol building. The film showcases the rich history of the building: the controversy of Guthrie vs. Oklahoma City, the building of the original structure, the city sprouting up around the Capitol, and, of course, the eight year renovation that was just completed. The film will showcase some of the best of Oklahoma with its admiration for art, its beloved legendary sons & daughters, and its distinctive unwavering voice. The art that hangs in her halls will be detailed, the great Oklahomans who have laid in repose will be examined, and with each we will see how every corner and crevice of the State Capitol was constructed to uplift Oklahomans and uphold their values.
