(Brad Lichtenstein, USA, English, 84 min, video, 2012) As Goes Janesville catapults viewers into America's debate over the future of our middle class – a debate that became a battle over unions in t he normally tranquil state of Wisconsin. It tells the tale from the inside\ , following three years in the lives of laid-off workers trying to reinvent themselves; business leaders aligned with the Governor to promote a pro-b usiness agenda to woo companies to town, and a state senator trying to bri ng peace to his warring state and protect workers' rights. As Goes Janesv ille , so goes America, a country mired in polarization and falling short of the American Dream.
