IN SEARCH OF AMERICA

a film by Petra Haffter

IN SEARCH OF AMERICA

Germany | 2009

Synopsis
Meeting today’s Americans What are Americans like today?
What do they expect after the Bush-Era? What is on their minds, and what is important to them? We travelled the United States on a hundred-day road trip, exploring the people and landscapes of America. From New England, we drive through the Midwest and on towards California, then back east through the Deep South, ending in Florida. We meet farmers, tour guides, architects, politicians and the homeless. We speak with prison inmates, marines and a death row candidate. We hear from civil rights activists, condom-grannies and Mexican Immigrants. They all have something in common – their strong optimism and belief in their own power, and the power of America.
