From Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan, Our Towns is a documentary that paints a remarkable picture of America and how the rise of civic and economic reinvention is transforming small cities and towns across the country.

Based on journalists James and Deborah Fallows’ book Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America, the film spotlights local initiatives and explores how a sense of community and common language of change can help people and towns find a different path to the future.

    Yes AMERICA is falling apart. Why? 4 torturous, long, excruciating, painful years of a fake phony, fraud, president!!! A man I refer to as "Agent Orange" because he is exactly like that chemical he's corrosive & deadly. Starting with the way he handled Covid 19 as "fake news" not real etc. Thousands and thousands of people died because of his pathetic ego. Including 9 of my family and friends!!! 9 yes 9. He let our country & dying towns down in every way possible!!! And yet he gets off Scott free every single time, outrageous.

    Man i wish my town was left alone…small place, beautiful, now all the hipsters from LA discovered it and trashed the hiking trails, gentrified the neighborhoods so they are not affordable to locals, and put the "smug alert" (southpark reference) meter to the max.

    At 0:52 "Everywhere we went people said the US is really in horrible shape, but here things are really moving ahead." He has no idea how "narrative" shattering that piece of evidence is. Remember, data is 2 or more anecdotes approved by academia. We're told endlessly by the mainstream media fed to us via social media click bait (because only Baby Boomers watch CNN & the networks, and reads the NY Times & Wash Post) that the US is the worst place ever in the history of the world. You can tell this HBO guy even believes it. What's more, the next guy talks about how the great things in his town can be replicated elsewhere, because he thinks his town is unique. But according to the HBO guy, every town thinks they're unique while the country at large is going to schitt. But nobody is really living that except those trapped in hot pockets like Seattle and Portland. Everybody else is living a great life, in fact, the best life humans have ever lived in the history of the world.

    Just watched the programe here in Ireland. Brilliant documentary. Really opened my eyes to see how resilient people can be when they work together to get a community back on its feet.
