The Anti-Americans (A Hate/Love Relationship)
2007, 56 minutes, produced and directed by Louis Alvarez, Andrew Kolker, and Peter Odabashian
They say that Americans are from Mars and Europeans are from Venus, but the story is a lot more complicated. The Anti-Americans is a whimsical yet serious look at the estrangement between Europeans and America that has developed over the last few years. The program travels to Ireland, France, Poland, and Great Britain to examine the idea that each country responds to American culture and society in its own unique way, based on its own cultural needs, history, and prejudices.
The Anti-Americans is part of PBS's America At A Crossroads series, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
