Description

Premiering in 2009 at the Sundance Film Festival, this documentary concerns itself with the ways Americans have come to understand the concept of freedom alongside the technological components of manifest destiny.  Stratman films gun shows and festivals, battle reenactments, border disputes, and other events that take part in the cultivation of American patriotism, nationalism, and the ideal of freedom.  Witty, serious, and informative at the same time, the film reflects upon culture and history while delivering a powerful message about American society.
