Movie Info

Two weeks before the election of Barack Obama, filmmaker Jeff Deutchman asked friends around the world -- including filmmakers Henry Joost, Margaret Brown, Joe Swanberg and Benh Zeitlin -- to record their experiences of 11/4/08. In this feature documentary, what emerges is a portrait of how people choose to live through "history": the celebration of a new future remaining entangled with the universally visible tensions of the past.

There are numerous times when one wishes the camera would remain on one of its many fascinating subjects and tell a more in-depth story.

An emotionally-engaging film featuring folks truly moved on what many will undoubtedly mark for posterity as the day they were most proud to be an American.

There's a sort of plebian engagement and value in these collected snapshots, but they don't really fit together in any compelling fashion.

I've seen the documentary twice now, months apart, and it seemed quite different on a second viewing. Years from now it'll be something else, and years after that, too.
