American Vertigo

A film by Michko Netchak

2006 France - Documentary


What does it mean to be an American, and what can America be today? To answer these questions, celebrated philosopher and journalist Bernard-Henri Lévy spent a year travelling throughout the country in the footsteps of Alexis de Tocqueville, whose "Democracy in America" (published in 1835) remains the most influential book ever written about the United States.
