Event Details

California has long embodied the American Dream: a place where creativity, innovation, and possibility prevailed.  But today, public schools have gone from first to worst, universities are overcrowded and financially failing, roads are congested and crumbling.  Water and environmental resources are shrinking as demand increases and pollution spreads.  The political process seems to be stalled in a state of paralysis and the massive budget crisis has created real gridlock. 

On Wednesday, December 5, California Watch (a project of the Center for Investigative Reporting) will spotlight the documentary California State of Mind: The Legacy of Pat Brown, as a launching off point to engage audiences in the challenges Californians face, as well as the opportunities for change. The award-winning film is much more than an examination of the past; this entertaining biography is a provocative portrait of a man whose bi-partisan can-do optimism can re-energize a critical dialogue.

Co-presented by The California Film Foundation
