PREMIERE CINEMA EXPERIENCE
The Sacramento International Film Festival 2012 invites you to discover former governor Pat Brown in an exciting tale of political power and a family dynasty called by some “The West Coast Kennedys.” The California State of Mind: The Legacy of Pat Brown plays on opening night of the festival, April 21, 2012 (Pat’s 107th Birthday) at the Crocker Art Museum.
In the turbulent 1960’s, an ordinary man rose to face extraordinary challenges. Now, Pat Brown’s granddaughter and award-winning Director, Sascha Rice, gives an inside look into the former Governor’s life and legacy which takes on startling new significance as his son, Jerry Brown is Governor of California – again. The documentary gracefully pivots from a tumultuous decade in American history to the contemporary challenges that California faces today. This dynamic American Dream story follows the journey of a man overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to shape the future of modern California.
