This feature tells the stories of two families in Milwaukee—one black, one white—in a battle to keep from sliding into poverty. With poignant and revealing intimacy, Two American Families chronicles the struggles of the Neumanns and the Stanleys as they try to hold onto their homes, their jobs, their health insurance, and a future for their children. A remarkable portrait of perseverance, the 90-minute film raises unsettling questions about the changing nature of the U.S. economy and the fate of a declining middle class.

Directed by: Kathleen Hughes, Bill Moyers
