Spurlock Museum - Event

Join us for an in-person screening and conversation with filmmaker Adam James Smith. Americaville is a feature documentary on living the American dream in China's Wild West. Hidden among the mountains north ofBeijing, a Wild West themed community promises to deliver the American dream to its several thousand Chinese residents. In Americaville, Annie Liu escapes China's increasingly uninhabitable capital city to pursue happiness, freedom, romance, and spiritual fulfillment in the town; only to find the American idyll harder to attain than what was promised her.
