Begin With Me

Director: Janet Kern | USA | 1991 | 56 mins.

​ “Begin With Me”, narrated by Garrison Keillor with inspiration from Mark Twain, documents a Soviet citizens’ delegation (including an astronaut and a milkmaid), sailing down the Mississippi in search of the “real America”. At every heartland port, the Soviets (mostly Russians) were taken in hand by local families for a softball game, a square dance and haunting conversations. A beautiful Russian journalist, a proud American farmer, a fierce grade school teacher from Kiev, and a hospitable psychologist from Iowa speak to homelessness, Mutually Assured Destruction, the unforeseen consequences of war, the judgement of history, and the philosophical underpinnings of the superpowers they love. Everything is, literally, on the table.
