AMERICAN DREAM features discussions with some of the nation’s brightest, boldest, and most innovative minds including Howard Zinn, Robert Altman, Willie Nelson, and, of course, Mrs. Frances Tingle herself. These screenings will be accompanied by a Q&A period with Tingle, followed by a live comedy performance.
