Film on the use of Danish folk school principles in regional development a the John C. Campbell Folk School in the Southern Mountain area of North Carolina. ABSTRACT: Production of a 50-minute, 16mm. color film on the use of Danish folk school principles in regional development at the John C. Campbell Folk School in the Southern Mountain area of North Carolina. Film emphasizes Folk School ideals--integration of cultural, economic and spiritual aspects of life through cooperation, community participation and service--as they have been applied at Campbell. School concentrates on use of local materials and local skills (training students, for example, how to build and furnish their own homes), community recreation through traditional square dancing, group singing, etc. Tries to inculcate sense of living together, cooperation rather than competition with work as an integrated part of community life. Seeks to preserve local culture, traditional community activities. Fund for film, salaries, general costs.
