A shout out from California. Go OWS! This movement is sparking important dialogue and I have great faith that we can make real postive change. I thank you all for your dedication. I will be in NYC next week and can't wait to come down and check it out!
I am a filmmaker and next week will be the NY Premiere of my documentary film CALIFORNIA STATE OF MIND: The Legacy of Pat Brown. (Pat was the father of Gov. Jerry Brown)
The film I believe can inspire us to imagine government working for the people. It think it is important to look back so we can look forward with the lessons and knowlege of those who came before us.
Following the 90 Minute Documentary there will be a panel discussion moderated by Amy Goodman from NPR. The panel will include Director Sascha Rice, Journalist Tom Brokaw, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine & Robert Shrum Senior Fellow NYC For More Info or to view the trailer go to: www.patbrowndocumentary.com

Here are more details.... In the turbulent 1960’s, an ordinary man rose to face extraordinary challenges. Pat Brown’s granddaughter and award-winning Director, Sascha Rice, gives an inside look into political power and a family dynasty called by some “the West Coast Kennedys.” This premiere account of former Governor Pat Brown’s life takes on startling new significance now that his son, Jerry Brown is Governor of California – again. An exciting tale of the West comes into focus as the filmmaker wrestles with the inherited optimism of her grandfather's legacy. The documentary gracefully pivots from a tumultuous decade in American history to the contemporary challenges that California faces today. This dynamic American Dream story follows the journey of a man overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to shape the future of modern California.
