Only in America

Directed by Ron Frank

USA | 72 minutes | 2002

Only In America follows Joseph Lieberman's landmark political progress from the 2000 Gore/Lieberman presidential race to his recent announcement that he will run for the top spot in 2004. Standing as witness to the Jewish-American process of emergence, from an ethos of persecution to the threshold of the White House, this is a truly American story. With Senator Lieberman's campaign and personal history as its centerpiece, the documentary paints a picture of the Jewish-American experience at the turn of the millennium. In the midst of a rally in Santa Fe a hand holds a sign reading, "Viva La Chutzpah," summing up the phenomenon created by a Vice Presidential campaign in which Joe Lieberman, an unabashedly Jewish candidate, crossed over ethnic and religious lines bringing out people of majority and minority backgrounds in record numbers.
