We are Wisconsin!
Documenting the public outcry against Wisconsin governor Scott Walker’s controversial 2011 budget-repair bill, We Are Wisconsin! focuses on the human story behind a remarkable popular uprising forged on the floor of the Madison Capitol. The film asks the question “why should we care about what’s going on in Wisconsin?” through an in-depth profile of six protesters—a UW-Madison student leader, a county social worker, a nurse, a high school teacher, a police officer, and a union electrician.
(2012, Dir. A. Williams, 90 min.)
