America's Socialist Experiment

Narrated and produced by Mike Gousha, local documentarian Steve Boettcher explores how Milwaukee, of all places, elected so many socialist leaders throughout its history - and how their strong commitments to environmental responsibility, public health, and ending political corruption have endured. Through archival materials and interviews with local historians (John Gurda? check), family members of these leaders, and more, this documentary weaves a compelling history of Milwaukee's unique political fabric.
