The US television premiere of As Goes Janesville on PBS Independent Lens.


From producer/director Brad Lichtenstein, As Goes Janesville is an intimate verité documentary that follows three years in the lives of working people, business leaders, and elected officials in one American town, trying to reinvent their local economy – and their lives - amidst America’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

As Goes Janesville in Chicago Magazine; Tim Cullen goes indie

Set to air on PBS Independent Lens on Monday November 5th, Kartemquin's next release is As Goes Janesville, a co-production with 371 Productions.


Well ahead of that broadcast on the eve of the 2012 Election, the film - which depicts the struggles of business leaders and union workers to rebuild their lives and the town's finances after the 2008 closure of a GM plant - has been thrust into Wisconsin's turbulent political debates.

The Ants & The Grasshopper

74 minutes
Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village.  Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real. Traveling from Malawi to California to the White House, she meets climate sceptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide, to schisms of race, class and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe they live on a different planet from everyone else. It will take all her skill and experience to help Americans recognize, and free themselves from, a logic that is already destroying the Earth.
