Shows a Middle Class Sliding Into Poverty
A new documentary by filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz follows eight families’ struggle to survive in the wake of the economic and foreclosure crisis. Their experiences are a stark reminder of what’s at stake and the catastrophic consequences of further cuts to safety-net programs.
“American Winter” shows mothers and fathers fighting to provide for their children, and children forced to grow up far too early. You follow them as they pound the pavement looking for work, grapple with corporate bureaucracy, and do everything they can to put food on the table. More than that, you see the toll their experiences take and their inspiring fight to stabilize their lives.
This is the film’s trailer.
