As Goes Janesville reports from America’s heartland — the city of Janesville, Wisconsin, home of Congressman Paul Ryan, Republican candidate for vice president. When GM shuts down the community’s century-old plant, forcing workers to leave their families in search of decent jobs, local business leaders seize the moment to woo new companies. A cautionary tale for a polarized country falling short of the American Dream, the film follows three years in the lives of laid-off workers struggling to survive, business leaders trying to reinvent their local economy and a state senator caught in the middle. As Goes Janesville, so goes America. A co-production between 371 Productions, Kartemquin Films and Independent Television Service (ITVS), As Goes Janesville will air nationally beginning October 8 on the PBS series Independent Lens.
