ALL ABOUT ANN: GOVERNOR RICHARDS OF THE LONE STAR STATE
An unmissable documentary for any political junkie, All About Ann celebrates the achievements of larger-than-life Ann Richards, who in 1991, became the first elected female governor of Texas. Her cool demeanor, acid wit, and passion for social inclusivity made her one of the most powerful and progressive governors in U.S. history, a liberal democrat intent on building "the new Texas." But, when the 1994 election begins, Richards is faced with her toughest challenge yet, as an increasingly conservative majority turn towards a new, pro-business candidate: George W. Bush.
Keith Patterson & Phillip Schopper’s engaging documentary offers a behind-the-scenes political case study that also serves as an origin story to our current partisan campaign culture, anchored by the irrepressible energy and one of a kind character of Ann Richards herself.
