Visions of the American Dream
in the Midwest Margins


A forthcoming feature-length documentary that explores the cultures, histories, and everyday extraordinary lives across the land known as Southern Illinois.

Filmed over the course of a year, ANOTHER ILLINOIS investigates the definitions of "community" in the margins of the Midwest, following diverse individuals across the region as they envision their versions of the "American Dream."
