Filmography   

filmmaker's note
I made this documentary with a grant from the Russo Brothers Film Forum with deep interest to see if Italian Americans are more American or are they still Italian American. Have they been absorbed by the American culture or is their influence so deep they continue to remain Italian in some way.
