The United States as Defined By Documentary Films


Recently I posted our list of the best documentaries of 2011 and stated that I am impressed with the growing number of incredible docs that get released each and every year. There are docs such as The Interpreters that choose to take us to places we may never visit (in this case the ghetto streets of Chicago) and give us a close look at the people who live there, who we may never come to know otherwise. Now the PBS documentary blog POV has created a map containing poignant and popular documentary films to represent each of the 50 states in the US. Find out which documentary defines your home state best. Head to the PBS website to see a larger version of the image and to get a list of all the films represented below. Enjoy!
