As Goes Janesville is a documentary by Brad Lichtenstein about a town, the loss of their GM plant and a civil war that split Wisconsin. 

America's middle class is dwindling, and the debate over how to save it is nowhere fiercer than in the normally tranquil state of Wisconsin. In Janesville, as jobs disappear and families are streteched to their breaking points, citizens, and politicians are embroiled in an ideological battle about how to turn things around.

This screening is presented by KCTS 9 and ITVS' Community Cinema. The film premieres on KCTS 9 on Thursday, October 4, at 9 pm.

Program running time: 2 hours
