Citizen USA: A 50 State Roadtrip DVD

SKU ID #360649
$19.98
Intrepid journalist/filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi – who has built an award-winning reputation with her playful, politically charged HBO documentaries focusing on both the famous (George Bush, Ted Haggard, John McCain, Barack Obama) and not-so-famous (right-wing Republicans, Evangelicals, motel kids in California) – unabashedly waves the flag in this uplifting and illuminating look at the naturalization process in America.

Beginning with the swearing-in ceremony of her own Dutch-born husband, Michiel Vos (who produced this and several other HBO films with his wife), Pelosi travels across the U.S. to attend naturalization ceremonies in all 50 states, where she meets brand-new citizens and probes why they inevitably chose America as their home. The documentary intersperses stories of newly naturalized citizens with interviews from notable first-generation Americans, including Madeleine Albright, Arianna Huffington, Henry Kissinger and Gene Simmons.

    Comments about this product:

    First saw this on TV. I will watch the CD, from time to time, to remind myself what a GREAT country AMERICA is, how lucky I am to have been born here, and how much I take for granted. It gives one pause to think.

            Comments about this product:

            This film is absolutely inspiring! It renews one's faith in our democracy and reminds us why the country we live in is so special. Airing in the current anti-immigrant climate, it demonstrates that the willingness to accept citizens from other parts of the world is why we have been so successful and if there are issues we need to resolve regarding immigration, we should do so. A fine example of Alexandra Pelosi's work, this film will be a great discussion-starter for my classroom.
