The inevitable clash of optimism and resulting social upheaval of the turbulent ‘60’s are brought to life in this intimate documentary on the life of Governor Edmund G. (Pat) Brown. Indisputably one of its most transformational politicians, Pat Brown revolutionized California by bridging political lines to push through some of the state’s most important legislation: affordable higher education for state residents, the passage of the fair housing act and the creation of the California Aqueduct. Directed and produced by Brown’s granddaughters, with candid observations from Tom Brokaw, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Dianne Feinstein and many others, California State of Mind tells the inspiring story of how one man overcame the odds and shaped the future of modern California.
