Janesville, Wisconsin, has entered the national spotlight.
It’s home to Congressman Paul Ryan, now Republican nominee for Vice President, but also to a shuttered automobile assembly plant and a wrecked economy. A new film called As Goes Janesville tells the story of those in Janesville struggling to retool after the closing of the GM auto plant.
Liz DiNovella sat down with Brad Lichtenstein, Producer and Director of As Goes Janesville.
You can watch the movie trailer here. The film airs on TV nationwide on Monday, October 8th. PBS has a nice site up about it. Catch it on Wisconsin Public Television at 9pm. It will also screen at the Sequoya branch of the Madison Public Library at 1pm on Saturday, October 20th.
