Granny D Goes to Washington

Granny D Goes to Washington chronicles the extraordinary march across the U.S. by political activist Doris Haddock. Passionate about democracy, she walked 3,200 miles from Pasadena, California, to Washington, DC, to dramatize the need to restore representative government in America and reduce the role of special interest money in politics. The film records her travels and conveys the infectious enthusiasm Granny D inspired in the people she met. With her feisty, unrelenting advocacy for participatory democracy, this five-foot great-grandmother stands tall as a role model of commitment and passionate engagement for people of all ages. The film features an interview with Senator John McCain.
