“We have a duty to look after each other. If we lose control of our government, then we lose our ability to disperse justice and human kindness. Our first priority today, then, is to defeat utterly those forces of greed and corruption that have come between us and our self-governance.”

-- Doris “Granny D.” Haddock


GRANNY D GOES TO WASHINGTON is a half-hour documentary that chronicles the extraordinary march across the U.S. by political activist, Doris Haddock. Passionate about democracy, she walked 3,200 miles from California to Washington, D.C. to dramatize the need to restore representative government in America and reduce the role of special interest money in politics. The film records her travels and conveys the infectious enthusiasm Granny D. inspired in the people she met.

With her feisty, unrelenting advocacy for participatory democracy, this five-foot-tall great-grandmother stands up as a role model of commitment and passionate engagement for people of all ages.





What happens when an 89-year-old idealist decides to walk across the country to demand that Washington lawmakers clean up their act?
