What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we're "from"? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries--one from each of our 50 states--that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home.
Karen has lived in the Hudson River Valley for many years and loves her community. Teaching English to Spanish speakers and keeping up her town's park as a volunteer are passions that allow her to meet people from different backgrounds and hear new ideas.
*States of America is created and produced by Brad Barber.
*New York is directed and shot by Brad Barber, edited by Melody Chow, with music by Micah Dahl Anderson.
