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.

Gov Pat Brown, father of Gov Jerry Brown, sent Alameda County Sheriffs to attack the Free Speech Movement sit-in at Sproul Hall in 1964. People were thrown down stairs and brutally treated. One good book on this sit-in is Bettina Aptheker's autobiography, Intimate Politics. He also murdered Caryl Chessman in 1960 at San Quentin; Chessman's case was a political football in Brown's 1960 campaign for president in which he ran for president in California's primary.
