Join Riverside Assemblyman José Medina and filmmaker Sascha Rice at a 7pm screening of the documentary California State of Mind: The Legacy of Pat Brown. In the turbulent 1960s, an ordinary man rose to face extraordinary challenges and powerfully shaped the future of modern California. Told from the perspective of his granddaughter, Sascha Rice, a dynamic American dream story unfolds in this unique portrait of Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, “the Godfather of Modern California.” Award‑winning filmmaker Sascha Rice creates an intimate, inside look at a California icon—the father of Governor Jerry Brown—and the making of a political dynasty. The film will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Rice and Medina.
