“American Winter” Screenings in Woodland & Davis

As part of CalFresh Awareness Month, screenings of the documentary, “American Winter” will be held on May 21 at 6:00 p.m. on the Woodland Community College campus and on May 22 at 6:30 p.m. on the UC Davis campus.

Directed by Emmy award-winning filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz (“Taxicab Confessions”, “The Defenders”), American Winter is a documentary feature film that follows the personal stories of eight families struggling in the wake of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The film presents an intimate snapshot of the state of the economy as it is playing out in the lives of American families, and highlights the human impact of budget cuts to social services, a shrinking middle class, and the fracturing of the American Dream.
