About the Film:
American Winter follows the personal stories of eight families struggling in the aftermath of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Filmed over the winter months of 2011-12, American Winter presents an intimate snapshot of the state of the nation's economy as it is playing out in the lives of many American families who are seeking help through the 211 service. The film reveals the human consequences of cuts to social services, the decline of the middle class, and the fracturing of the American Dream. Woven into the film are interviews with economic experts, policy analysts, and religious leaders, as well as interviews with social workers on the frontlines of the economic fallout.

There's no manual for dealing with life's problems. That's why 211info, a local nonprofit, provides community services knowledge to those who need help. Every year, 211info makes more than 260,000 connections, either via the phone or the web, to vital services as diverse as foreclosure assistance, health care and basic needs. By 2013, every Oregonian will have access to 211.
