AMERICAN WINTER

About AMERICAN WINTER is a timely documentary that follows the personal stories of families struggling in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Filmed over the winter of 2011-12, the film presents an intimate snapshot of the state of the nation’s economy as it is playing out in the lives of many American families. It reveals the human consequences of cuts to social services, the decline of the middle class, and the fracturing of the American Dream.
