More about this Title: Subtitle from distributor's website: Thoughts from and about U.S. citizens abroad
Summary: "As America undergoes rapid economic, cultural, and political changes, how is its global image evolving? In what ways do expatriate Americans shape foreign perceptions of the United States? And what is it like for homegrown U.S. citizens to live among those who understand little about them? This program presents interviews with Americans in Russia, France, Italy, Greece, and Egypt. Each shares his or her thoughts on patriotism, stereotypes, personal and political freedoms, and the challenge of seeing one's birthplace objectively. Indigenous residents of each country contribute impressions of the Americans in their midst while the film's Russian-born director reflects on leaving her homeland behind."--Distributor's description.
