Generation on the Wind is a 1979 documentary film produced by David Vassar and Andrew Finley. The film is a character study centered on a ragtag group of young artists, mechanics, and environmental activists who successfully built the largest electrical generating windmill in the world. The documentary required two years of shooting and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. (58 min.)
