The UNSSU compound raided in the movie was at an abandoned building outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. It stood on the grounds of a Nebraska state surplus site and remained in its "UNSSU" scheme (including large red lettering, white paint and burn marks) for many years until its demolition in August 2007.

I'm not going to accept the breakup of America. I'll resist with my spirit; I'll resist with my life. I can resist because I've found the love of my children; the possibility that their lives are more important than my own. I'll live through my children - through whatever good and true things I might have taught them, or the legacy of fear I might have left them. Each of us will find our best selves, or our worst selves - and in finding that, immortality.

"Amerika" had potential, but squandered it in a storyline that made no sense and in characters that made even less sense.
I watched this miniseries when it was broadcast, and taped it thinking it would be something worth keeping. I've never been inclined to view those tapes, because the non-sequitors were annoying the first time through.
This was a dreadful production. It isn't obscure because it was controversial, it's obscure because it's dreadful. The Russians are in charge, but why does that mean there is no running water? I kept waiting for the story to go somewhere, for Kris Kristopherson to start acting (never happened!), for some character, somewhere to make me care what happened to them.
This miniseries is not a suppressed gem. It's a well-ignored waste of time, talent, and potential.
