The Filmmakers Hardworking Pictures, based in St. Paul, Minnesota comment: WELLSTONE! is a feature length documentary about a remarkable man who defied tradition and returned politics to the people. Like Paul Wellstone, the film is smart, funny, and full of surprises. The young man who was to become Senator Wellstone was the son of immigrant parents who grew up in a suburb of Washington, DC, married his high school sweetheart and found meaning in his favorite saying: The future will not belong to those who sit on the sidelines! After graduating with a PhD in political science from the University of North Carolina, the Wellstone family moved to Minnesota where the new doctor had an appointment at Carleton College. The film provides insight into Wellstone's political style and deep concerns by presenting these early years with care and humour, including old news footage of some of the student rallies that Wellstone led while at Carleton. The emergence of his own interpretation of a populist political philosophy is well documented.
