THE IFP/CHICAGO FACETS FILM SERIES PRESENTS
Filmmaker George Motz in person!
Free for IFP, NATAS and FACETS members
Hamburger America is a documentary film that tells the story of eight deliciously unique hamburger locations across the country and the people behind the burgers. Each restaurant featured in the film has been around for more than forty years, uses only fresh meat, and in many cases can boast the fact that ownership has stayed within the same family. Not only is each establishment family run, but their booths, counters, and stools have seen families come together and grow over the years. The tenets of tradition, family, and pride are what make Hamburger America a truly American tale.
Directed by George Motz, 2004, 54 min.
