The OTHER American(s) (2010)

0.0 ·

Detroit. Fall 2008. Barack Obama makes a pre-election visit to Detroit which serves as a backdrop for a series of interviews about life and the future of the United States of America. The people are cautiously optimistic about the future in the hope that Barack Obama will bring much needed change. Opinions are diverse. One thing is certain in their reflections. The situation for the country is precarious and there are no easy choices with Global Warming, Economic Collapse, War, Foreclosures, Crime, Homelessness and Unemployment, their daily companions.

As one person said, 'I don't agree with the international and national policies of the U.S. government. I'm the other American.'

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
