The Flag Makers

The Flag Makers is a film about the unexpected people who make the American flag and invites us to ask the question: who is America and who is the American flag for?

A behind-the-scenes look at the largest American flag factory in the United States where a tight-knit team of diverse refugees and immigrants from twelve nations cut, sew and ship 5 million American flags a year. These flags fly over our government buildings, hang in our classrooms, and are carried in rallies, parades, protests, sporting events, and funerals. This is a film about the people who make our flag and follows where those flags go.
