A documentary of our times that is a must see for all age groups, 8 November 2007
Author: joecary-1 from United States

This is a remarkable story of a remarkable woman. Granny D reinvented herself at the age of 90, and is still fighting at the age of "97" to make the American government a government of the people, for the people and by the people. She was last seen walking up to the New Hampshire state house lobbying for a bill for government funding of state campaigns.

We all should take a lesson from her and do more to make our democracy a more representational institution. The film follows her campaign for the US Senate. The director did a great solo job in producing, directing and editing the film. This is not your average talking heads documentary. I urge all to buy the DVD.
